Planned power outage scheduled for June 12 for Monticello area

Empire Electric Association (EEA) has scheduled a construction outage for its Monticello Rural substation. It will begin at 11 p.m. on Sunday, June 12 and will last until approximately 4 a.m. on Monday, June 13. The outage will impact over 1200 meters in the Monticello area. The outage is part of a project to connect the Monticello Rural substation to the Rocky Mountain Power Pinto substation. This connection will increase reliability for the Monticello and Dove Creek communities by providing an emergency power supply if power is disrupted from the normal supply line in Cahone, CO. The entire substation must be de-energized to allow crews to safely install the new interconnection equipment. Those who will experience power loss will be informed by phone, with reminder phone calls will be made on Friday, June 10. If you live in Monticello or the surrounding area and did not receive a call about the outage, it may be because EEA does not have your correct phone number. To update your contact information, log in to your SmartHub account, or call EEA’s office at (800) 709-3726. Information on how to prepare for an outage is found at eea.coop. Please remember to turn off or unplug sensitive electronic devices during the outage to reduce the chance they may be damaged when power is restored. Empire Electric appreciates your patience as they work to keep the distribution system safe and reliable.
