Generac providing backup power to Village of Eagle
Waukesha-based Generac Power Systems Inc. said it is supplying backup power to the Village of Eagle Fire Station and will be working with the Eagle Public Works Department to help provide temporary power to local homes and businesses.
The village was hit the hardest by severe storms, which included tornados, that swept through southeastern Wisconsin Monday night. Several homes in Eagle were destroyed or severely damaged.
“Our plant in Eagle gives us local roots in the community and many Generac employees live in this area,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, Generac president and CEO. “I was especially concerned watching the storm unfold and am relieved no one has been hurt. Generac is grateful we are able to help the residents while they are without power and will continue to do whatever we can until power is restored.”
Gov. Jim Doyle declared a state of emergency for Waukesha County as a result of the storm damage.
“This was a devastating string of storms that hit Waukesha County,” Doyle said. “Information is continuing to come in, but it is clear that a significant number of homes were destroyed or sustained substantial damage in the storms. I spoke to Richard Spurrell, the Village (of Eagle) president, and assured him that the state will do everything we can to help Eagle rebuild. To achieve that, I have declared a State of Emergency for Waukesha and have directed state agencies to assist local governments in recovering from this natural disaster.”
