Girdwood Outage Oct. 11, 2016

Substation work requires three-hour outage on October 12 

A project replacing the control enclosure at Chugach Electric’s Girdwood Substation will require a power outage scheduled for Wednesday, October 12 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. This is the second of three planned outages necessary for the project.

Chugach is replacing the enclosure that houses substation controls located in the Girdwood Old Townsite behind the Tesoro Mall. The project requires three planned outages, the first of which was overnight on June 28/29. The second outage, on October 12, will allow for setting the new control enclosure in place using a crane.

Once the new control enclosure is in place, crews will take several weeks to wire the connections that will allow Chugach to use the new enclosure.
