Several of our members have experienced outages over the past few days, including today. It may not reduce the major inconvenience of being without electric service, but we can provide an explanation, somewhat technical, as to what is happening. AEP contractors are currently rebuilding their 138 kV (138,000 volt) transmission lines. When workers are present on those high voltage lines crossing BREC distribution lines, our substation breaker settings are changed to "HOT LINE TAG", (fastest, highly sensitive and operating only once without attempting to re-energize the line) for the PROTECTION of the lineman and our members. This is for SAFETY reasons in the event that a high voltage transmission line would drop onto our distribution lines. This means that a normal fault caused on BREC distribution, perhaps by a squirrel on top of a transformer or a tree limb falling through the line, 10 miles from the substation, will actually now disrupt the main line, affecting many more members, instead of being isolated to just the area where the problem occurred. All of these recent outages occurred when the breaker was at this required setting. Based on the amount of issues we are experiencing we are looking into ways to further reduce the disruption of service. We can only apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause, but when it comes to member and employee SAFETY, we cannot compromise on this issue. Thanks for your understanding. ...
