Feb.16 Power Outage: Statement from Dairyland Power
Dairyland apologizes for any inconvenience to members of Riverland Energy Cooperative and appreciate their understanding following a power outage on the Dairyland transmission system Thursday evening.
Dairyland scheduled a planned two-hour outage to safely perform work on the final 9-mile segment of the Q1 line on Thursday evening, Feb. 16. Once work was underway, additional time was needed to perform the work safely and the total outage time extended.
Safety is our highest priority at Dairyland, and decisions are made to ensure the safety of personnel working on our facilities and the public. Dairyland staff work diligently to minimize planned or unplanned outages as we strive to achieve our goal to deliver power to our members safely and reliably.
