Eagle Creek Substation Outage

  • 6 April 2023
  • 2224
  • 180

Outage Update:  2:25 pm

Crews have determined the substation transformer was damaged by lightning.  They are working to put a backup transformer in service.  The estimated time for that process is 4 hours.

Outage Update:  11:40 am

The substation transformer testing is complete but inconclusive. Crews are testing and monitoring other pieces of equipment in the substation. We expect the outage to last several more hours. Arrangements should be made, if possible, for perishables.

Outage Update:  8:15 am

FELPS and CPS Energy crews are working in the Eagle Creek substation to assist in restoration of the outage. The substation transformer must be tested before it can be brought back online. There is a potential the substation took a direct lightning strike. Testing is a long process due to the size and nature of the equipment. At this time, we are not able to determine the length of time until restoration. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We will continue to update you as information is available.
