System Wide Storm Damage (9/29/19)
Just after 10:30 p.m., Sunday, September 29, 2019, a lightning storm rolled across our service territory leaving 1,728 members without power. The lightning caused 28 separate outage incidents and 13 non-outage incidents. We experienced one circuit outage at Isanti Substation Circuit 6 when the recloser locked out just after midnight, leaving 1,388 members without power for over an hour. Fortunately, outages due to lightning are often quick to restore as a line or transformer only needs to be re-fused. We had 5 crews restoring power for all or most of the night. The majority of our members were restored by the start of the normal workday.
