Current Power Outages

April 28, 2015 - Planned power outage for Girdwood

Chugach has planned an outage that will affect customers in Girdwood. The outage is needed to safely perform maintenance at the Girdwood Substation. Crews will be working on a 115-kv transmission structure, and testing and performing maintenance on the substation transformer.

The 5-hour outage is scheduled to begin at midnight on Monday night, April 27 and end by 5:00 a.m., Tuesday, April 28. Unplanned events could delay or shift anticipated outage time.

 

The online map shows customer-reported outages, but not necessarily all of the hundreds of customers left without power when a significant disruption trips a substation breaker, de-energizing a primary feeder. Outages automatically populate to the map as customers report them, but aren't removed until a person confirms restoration has occurred and clears them. Consequently, there can be a delay in real-time status.
