Electrical Surge Causes Outage In Memphis

Customers of the Memphis City electric system experienced a power outage Saturday, August 10, at approximately 9:10 p.m. with some customers going without power for approximately 80 minutes.

Light Plant Superintendent Mike Ahland stated the local problem was caused by a larger outage experienced by Northeast Power of Palmyra, which supplies electricity to the Memphis system.

Ahland said this outage caused a surge in the local system, which knocked out two of the 69,000 volt fuses in the Memphis system, causing the local outage. The outage occurred in the city's 7,200 volt system that runs a circuit around the outer edge of town. The 2,400 volt system went out for a few seconds following the surge but returned to service without any true outage.

Ahland stated the city's automated system at the light plant worked efficiently, notifying the employees of the outage and getting the ball rolling to return power to customers as quickly as possible.
