Early Tuesday morning September 25 from 12:30 am (half past midnight tonight) until 2:30 am all of San Juan County will be affected by a planned outage. Another outage is planned for Tuesday, October 23. These outages are necessary for BPA to replace a section of one of the two main power lines that feeds the San Juan Islands from Fidalgo Island.

These maintenance outages will happen on overnight weekdays to minimize impact to OPALCO consumers. This outage will allow the BPA crew to deconstruct a section of high-voltage line in need of replacement.

OPALCO recommends you turn sensitive equipment off at the power strip or unplug. In the morning, turn equipment on gradually to aid in power load pick up. OPALCO members are responsible for their own equipment. Members are encouraged to install surge protection to safeguard electronic, computer and other sensitive equipment and appliances.
