SUBSTATION FAULT CAUSES POWER OUTAGE AFFECTING KEY WEST AND SURROUNDING AREAS

06/17/2005 ~ A blown transformer at the US 1 Substation caused a cascading of under voltage throughout portions of Keys Energy Services (KEYS) system which resulted in power outages throughout Key West, Stock Island, and Key Haven.

The fault at the substation occurred at 7:46 p.m. with resulting outages occurring throughout the city and surrounding areas immediately thereafter.

KEYS crews isolated the transformer and KEYS customers began to be reenergized at 9:30 p.m. In order to aide the restoration efforts the Big Pine area was temporarily de-energized shortly before 10:00 p.m. to help reestablish voltage levels. All KEYS customers were energized by 10:00 p.m.

KEYS regrets any inconveniences experienced as a result of this outage.
