On Sunday February 16th at approximately 6pm Evansville Water & Light experienced and electric outage that originated from the substation near CTH M. Crews were dispatched and were unable to immediately find a cause for the drop of the substation. Crews were able to back feed customers from the substation located on Union St. and power was restored at 9:31pm. Evansville has worked hard in years past to ensure the possibility of back feeding and looping customers power to minimize outages when they occur. We are still working diligently to find and repair the cause of the downed substation. Once the solution is found and we re-energizer the CTH M substation we should be able to do so with no interruption of power. If this is not able to be done or plans change we will send out additional notifications to customers and let them know of the expected outage time.
As always, we appreciate your support and patience.
