A planned outage is scheduled for electric customers in Boyd County, as well as parts of Holt and Knox County, Sunday, November 6 from 1 to 5 p.m., following the completion of upgrades to the main substation that serves the area. The outage will impact Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) customers in the communities of Butte, Bristow, and Lynch, as well as the Village of Spencer, and Niobrara Valley Electric Membership Corporation customers in rural Boyd County, northwestern Knox County, and northern Holt County. The first of two planned outages occurred on September 18, so crews could begin making substation upgrades. Now that the upgrades have been completed, a second planned outage will be observed so that the system can be returned to normal operation. “Outages are never ideal, and we appreciate everyone’s patience during this process. These upgrades will help ensure that area residents have reliable power for years to come,” says NPPD Account Manager Brittney Koenig. “Similar to the first planned outage in September, our crews will be taking the chance to complete work on other parts of our system that would otherwise require an outage,” notes Niobrara Valley Electric Membership Corporation General Manager Matt Fritz. NPPD and Niobrara Valley Electric Membership Corporation will begin reaching out to customers who will be impacted by the outage between November 1st and 3rd.
