The power remained out for more than an hour. That customer’s power was reportedly restored at 6:14 a.m., but went off again at about 7:30 a.m.

However, SECO customers in Rio Grande, Tierra Del Sol and De La Vista were reporting their power was still out at about 7 a.m.

The source of the problem appeared to be at the Lake Ella Substation. A crew was on site at about 6 a.m. trying to determine the root cause of the service interruption.
