Electric outage to affect residents of Harmony


Fri, Apr 5th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Home & Garden

A new transformer will be installed on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 1 AM. Therefore, almost the entire community (except the north industrial park area) will be without electricity starting on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 1 AM. The outage could last up to approximately 5 hours.

In July 2012, the transformer at the electric substation at 2nd Ave NW & 4th St NW failed. Due to inventory challenges at the time, a replacement transformer was installed, that was later determined to be oversized for our current/future community electric usage patterns. The Harmony City Council approved installing a new transformer, that will not only match our usage patterns, but be more economical.
