Roughly 1700 customers were without power for a few hours Monday morning as several feeders went off-line.
Deb Ferreira of Alaska Electric Light and Power says the cause was the malfunction of a monitoring device or meter in Auke Bay. A total of six distribution feeders in the Auke Bay and Lena Loop areas powered down just before 7 o’clock Monday morning.
Most of the power was restored about 9:15 a.m. The last feeder to come back up was for Auke Bay and the University of Alaska Southeast. Because of some undetermined malfunction on that feeder, power was not restored for those 500 customers until about 10 o’clock.
