February 6th Seldovia Outage

February 7, 2018 – Homer Electric Association, Inc. (HEA) experienced an outage yesterday, February 6, 2018 at 4:18 AM leaving 621 members without power due to a broken insulator and burnt up cross arm on the power line supplying Seldovia. By 5:20 AM HEA Dispatch was able to bring up generators in Port Graham and Seldovia to supply backup power to members. However, the generator in Seldovia tripped off line at 7:32 AM which left 375 members without power. Transportation to the other side of the bay due to heavy fog conditions delayed HEA crews from being able to make it over to Seldovia to initiate repairs. The crews completed repairs at 3:15 PM and power was restored to all remaining members. Thank you for your patience during this time.
