Oncore/TXU Complaint - Power goes out if wind blows

Review by brandie3131 on 2011-04-11
DALLAS, TEXAS -- Red Oak TX had a wind storm and power went out at 2am...24 hrs later still no electricity... Can take up to 5 days...to fix the transformer across the street I saw blow... Oncore check local zoo for monkeys... They could train faster than the workers you have now.... Hope we never have a real disaster in txu Dallas area....... We'll all be flyin kites with keys for electricity...

TXU.....worst company since they claim oncore as a separate company for service....

Since it was a wind storm, could there possibly be severe damage to the main line and other lines not near you that are more of a priority? As you mentioned you saw the transformer blow that takes a lot, so something major happened somewhere else or the wind ripped the power cords from the transformer.

If this is a frequent occurrence, then perhaps an investment in a back-up generator would be wise.
