FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 11, 2010

SCHEDULED OUTAGES IN THE TRAPP ADDITION

In order to complete an electrical system rebuild in the area north of West Doolin, known as the Trapp Addition, a series of scheduled outages will be necessary.  This is scheduled to take place between May 18 and May 26. The outages will range in duration from two to four hours and begin at approximately 10:00 am. Every effort will be made to minimize the duration of the outages. Residents in the area will each have a single outage and be notified a day or two in advance via a notice on their front door. These outages are required to change the high voltage system in the area from the 4160 volt system to the 14,400 volt system. Dual voltage transformers were installed in the area during the system rebuilt to facilitate this change.

While the outages are regrettable, the long term benefits will outweigh the short term inconveniences. Peak load (summer time) voltage stability and reliability will both be improved.
