El Paso Electric Says They Know Why There Are Power Outages In Far East El Paso – Here’s Why There Might Be More

Arman Davtyan

If you live in a certain part of far east El Paso, you have probably had to deal with a number of power outages over the past couple of weeks. El Paso Electric says they know why those outages are happening, but they say, there might be more before they can fix the problem.

Turns out, the transformer that serves the neighborhood is damaged. El Paso Electric says they are working on the transformer for that area, but it might be a couple of more days before the problem is taken care of, and there might be more power outages before the transformer problems is fixed.

From El Paso Electric:

“EPE asks the public conserve energy between the hours of 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. until Friday, July 14, 2017. EPE is asking that customers in the neighborhoods between Montana Avenue (U.S. 62/180) and Pellicano Drive (North/South) and Loop 375 and John Hayes Street/Berryville Street (East/West) conserve energy as these are the customers served by this substation.”

Some of the ways you can conserve energy is to set your thermostat to 78 degrees when you’re home and 80 degrees when you leave, and do heat and humidity-generating activities like cooking and washing clothes and dishes laundering early in the morning or later in the evening.
