PUEBLO WEST, CO – Late winter and early spring have brought some severe weather, especially wind and snow, causing serial outages for several rural electric cooperative Members of San Isabel Electric; however, the hurricane-force winds that swept across the service territory in the early morning of March 24, 2017 set the gears in motion for what our linemen are calling the “worst outage in over twenty years.” The outage peaked early-on, the morning of Friday, March 24, with a maximum of 5,000 Members out of power by around 10:30 a.m., with the loss of two transmission poles. Locations were scattered across the service territory but was mostconcentrated in the La Veta and Trinidad service territories. By the afternoon, it was decided that Huerfano andLas Animas Counties had suffered the worst structural damage, and an extended outage was looking very likely.Additional contracted crews were immediately contacted to aid in restoration efforts.By 9:40 a.m. on Saturday, March 25, crews had made considerable progress and the number out was approximately 3,000.
