(Neb)-Northwest Rural PPD Ups Number Of Customers Affected By Chadron Outage
HAY SPRINGS - Northwest Rural Public Power District says about 300 of its customers will be affected by tonight's planned 4-hour power outage in Chadron, about a third more than originally expected for the 1:00 a-m shutdown.
Spokesman Les Tlustos says Northwest Rural thought backfeeding from other substations would limit the impact to fewer than 190 of its customers west of Chadron whose service is routed through the Chadron substation to be affected, but has now decided customers on all sides of Chadron will be affected .
A map on the Northwest Rural PPD Facebook page shows the areas that will be without electricity as a result of the Chadron outage, which is needed for NPPD to check out some key equipment at the Chadron substation.
