Now that was fun - 15K people without power

| No Comments

They had it restored in 45 minutes - there is a big substation nearby so something happened that brought that crashing down.  Hit the big RESET button and everything came back up again.

Funny as the lead story for our local fish-wrap was this:

PUD plans second high-voltage line to Camano
Power outages on Camano Island could become less frequent.

The Snohomish PUD is proposing to build a long-planned and long-awaited second high-voltage transmission line to Camano, adding redundancy that should increase power reliability, the utility said.

The PUD wants to build a new 5.3-mile overhead line from the North Stanwood substation to the North Camano substation. Afterward, it also plans to rebuild the existing 2.7-mile overhead line.

But the North Stanwood substation was what went down so this would not have affected it at all.  There were 4,500 customers without power in the Stanwood area as well as the 10K poor sods on this blighted island.. Vancouver Island has about 40K outages, Lower Mainland 6.5K  Seattle and Tacoma areas are showing about 10K
