Power outage beginning at 11:45 pm on Thursday, May 26th and ending by 4:00 am on Friday, May 27th

ll of OPALCO’s District 1 including San Juan Island, Brown, Henry and Pearl Islands will experience a planned power outage beginning at 11:45 pm on Thursday, May 26th and ending by 4:00 am on Friday, May 27th. The planned outage is necessary for the line crew to work safely on the Pear Point Substation as part of a major renovation project that will improve system reliability.

OPALCO members are responsible for their own equipment and OPALCO encourages all members to install surge protection to safeguard electronic, computer and other sensitive equipment and appliances. To prepare for the outage, members may want to turn sensitive electronics and equipment off at the surge protector, or unplug them completely – and keep a flashlight handy.
