Members near Northeast Elementary School in Brighton are being affected by a power outage that was taken as a precaution while crews work on the local electric system. Earlier this afternoon, a truck accident damaged poles and electric equipment serving the area.
Crews are working now to replace the two poles damaged in the accident and make line repairs. To protect our crews on the line and our members in the surrounding area, United Power has shut off electric service to nearby homes. Outages may last from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and homes may lose power more than once while the repairs are completed. We appreciate the patience of our members and assure you our crews are working as quickly as is safely possible to repair the system and restore electric service.
