HEA Crews Restore Outage Across the Bay

Posted: October 7, 2020 at 7:54 am

Homer Electric Association, Inc. (HEA) crews responded to a power outage affecting 613 members across Kachemak Bay on October 5, 2020. The outage started at 7:17 PM, and at approximately 8:26 PM, HEA Operations was able to isolate the outage to a section of power line between Six Mile and MacDonald Spit.

The power was restored to all but 44 members by placing them on remote generation. Due to darkness, the HEA crew flew over at first light on October 6 and discovered a tree had fallen onto the power line. By 10:45 AM, the line crew had made final repairs and the remaining 44 members were back in power.
