MEDIA RELEASE

(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / May 26, 2020) – Stillwater Electric Utility responded to a power outage.


Outage

At approximately 07:49 p.m. on May 25, 2020 electric crews responded to an outage that affected approximately 2016 customers in north Stillwater

High winds and rain caused several tree limbs to make contact with power lines that created a fault opening a circuit breaker in the Industrial substation. Electric utility crews had to call in tree trimmers to scale a large tree to clear the limbs while the crews made repairs.

Customers were restored at approximately 10:25 p.m. Total outage time was approximately 2 hours and 36 minutes.
