10/9/2013 9:33:00 PM Power to be off in Perkins Oct. 20
Power will be off in Perkins from 11:55 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19, until approximately 4 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20.
According to Mitch Hale, OG&E Community Affairs Manager, the planned outage is necessary to swap out, assemble, and energize a second transformer at OG&E's substation at Knipe and Sadler Road. It's part of a 69 to 138kv conversion.
"The outage should not take four hours but just in case there is a small glitch we add a couple of hours," Hale said.
"We just want everyone to know about the outage and plan accordingly," Perkins City Manager Pete Seikel added.
