Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities announced today that weather permitting, a brief power outage is planned for a portion of North Mesa.
The 10 to 20 minute outage is planned for 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27. The area affected is east of the Hawk Drive/San Ildefonso Road intersection, not including the Del Norte and Del Sol areas.
Electric line crews will reconfigure the three phase power in these North Mesa neighborhoods to optimize electric loads and reduce possibility for future power outages in the area.
Customers are reminded to shut down or back up computers and other electronic equipment in advance.
North Mesa is also slated for electric upgrades in fiscal year 2014 to minimize the duration and extent of unplanned outages.
