Beginning Friday evening, August 28th at midnight, there will be a scheduled power outage affecting our Camas Valley, Tenmile, Lookingglass, Melrose and Umpqua substations. Essentially our entire south system will be down, affecting 4,000+ members. The outage will last approximately 4 hours and power should be restored by Saturday morning, August 29th at 4:00am.
The reason for the outage is that our power supplier, Bonneville Power Administration, needs to replace a transformer in their Lookingglass metering station. Douglas Electric is going to take advantage of their outage to perform necessary upgrades to our own Lookingglass substation.
If you have any questions about this scheduled outage, please call 541-673-6616. Thank you!
