Troy Substation Feeder Loses Power
Wednesday, December 5, 2018

At 12:19 p.m. 577 members in St. Clair and Madison Counties lost power when Southwestern Electric Cooperative’s Troy Substation Southwest feeder tripped and locked out due to unknown reasons at this time. This feeder is currently operating under a more sensitive protection setting due to Ameren personnel performing transmission line maintenance so instead of a blink to try and clear temporary faults, the feeder will open up and lock out. Southwestern Electric line crews are working to restore power as soon as possible.
