A lot of stuff that Brownsboro residents will be looking for when they leave for work will be missing from their desks or the living room, but one item that is going to be hard to replace is the hardware they use to run their computers.
In the past year, Brownsboro has experienced a series of power outages that caused residents to run out of power to their homes and businesses.
One of the largest power outage incidents in the area happened last week, and Brownsboro resident John Kincaid was working in his garage when he noticed his computer was down.
Kincaid called a power company and was told that he would need to replace a small part of the power supply to his system.
The replacement part cost about $20,000, but Kincafieds father and brother were able to pay it off and he is now able to use his computer.
The Brownsboro Electric utility is going door to door and asking residents for help to make sure they have enough power to use in the event of a power outage.
A representative from the utility said that they have received more than 600 requests for help and have received many emails from people asking for help.
Brownsboro Utilities has been working with other utilities to help residents with this type of problem and has even offered free power in lieu of buying the new parts.
The utility said they have already been getting emails from residents asking for free power to help out, and the utility has also started sending out flyers around the area asking people to call the utility if they have any questions about the power outage or to send in any pictures of power lines or power lines that have gone out.
The utility has had people send in pictures of downed power lines to the utility, and it is planning to post the pictures on their website soon.
