Heather was lucky. Our system doesn’t detect every power quality problem in our District. “It could be a bad breaker, a failing panel, a bad meter base, wiring problems, overloaded circuits,” said Distribution Engineering and Operations Manager Randy Grove. “If you notice unusual signs, like your lights dimming and then really bright several times, please turn off the main breaker in your home, and call us immediately. Not necessarily during a storm–occasional power hiccups can happen during storm conditions–but issues that go on for more than a few minutes. We’ll check the problem out for free. It might be on our side of the meter, or it might be the customer’s responsibility to have repairs made, but either way, it’s very important to have the problem checked out.”
