A planned power outage will occur early Friday morning, June 19 between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. The majority of households in Ashland will lose power for up to thirty minutes during that time period.
Earlier this week, many parts of Ashland experienced a power outage which was caused by a raccoon that had climbed atop a transformer and shortened the main electrical buss at the Mountain Avenue substation. Since that time power areas normally served by the Mountain Avenue substation have been served by the Ashland and Oak Knoll substations. The damage has been repaired and the planned outage is to allow crews to switch service back to the Mountain Avenue substation.v
