Short Outage at KEA Substation

Jay Barrett/KMXT

A short power outage at 8:52 this (Thursday) morning left Kodiak Electric customers from Gibson Cove to Monashka Bay without electricity for about a half hour.

KEA spokeswoman Nancy Sweeney said the problem was a cable fault at the Hartman Substation, which is adjacent to the co-op’s headquarters and power house.

Just a reminder, KMXT’s emergency generator kicks on very quickly after an outage so we can continue broadcasting and bring you vital information in the case of a natural disaster or extended outage.
