Power Restored to Dickinson Homes

Posted: Updated:

About 5,700 Dickinson residents are trying to figure out why their power was out this morning for over an hour.

Montana-Dakota Utilities says a relay tripped out around 7:30 a.m. MT. That shut down three of the five MDU substations in Dickinson. Sixty percent of customers lost power. A spokesman says crews don't know what caused the trip.

"They have determined that what didn't cause it is, it was not any demand issue or no equipment failure at the substations. So, they're still trying to pinpoint if it was something further out on a transmission line," says Mark Hanson, MDU.

Crews got the power back on around 9 a.m. MT by switching some of the power routes and resetting the system.
