October 15, 2017 Outage

Homer Electric Association, Inc. (HEA) members experienced a brief power outage Sunday morning, October 15, 2017.

The outage that affected 3,642 members started at approximately 4:25 AM and power was restored seven minutes later at 4:32 AM to all members.

The cause was due to Municipal Light and Power (ML&P) in Anchorage loosing generation; and destabilizing the line power. This in turn caused HEA’s system to start a load shed event.
