OCTOBER 6TH POWER OUTAGE UPDATE

10/06/2009 ~ At approximately 12:30 p.m., on Tuesday, October 6th, a breaker in the US1 Electrical Substation tripped offline when contractors for Keys Energy Services’ (KEYS) were working on scheduled repairs within the substation. No injuries were reported.

As a result, approximately 10,000 KEYS’ customers within the city-limits of Key West lost power when substations throughout the City shut down as a self preservation measure – which they are programmed to do – when they detected the under voltage within the system.

Once the breaker was isolated in the US1 Electrical Substation, power restoration began to the City of Key West with power being restored to all affected customers by approximately 1:00 p.m.
