Power outage Wednesday morning in valley

Power was temporarily interrupted for some Juneau valley residents this morning due to a part malfunction at a substation.

Deb Ferreira, VP director of consumer affairs for the Alaska Electric Light & Power Co., said the outage was caused after a disconnect switch at the Loop substation burned out around 7:20 a.m.

Ferriera said a crew responded and rerouted power. Customers had electricity back by 8 a.m. Once the disconnect switch is fixed, she said crews will disconnect the reroute. There should be no further interruption of service.

In all, approximately 3,100 customers experienced the outage.
