Work on replacing the master switches and meter banks has begun.
Notices will be hung on front doors indicating that your unit will be with out electricity for the day or be without electricity for an hour in the morning and evening. Xcel has to shut down the full transformer to isolate the building being worked on. Once the work is complete the transformer has to be shut down again to bring up the building that was completed.
McBride is trying to give us a schedule a week out but things can change at the last minute. For example yesterday they were to do a building but Xcel had things come up and could not get anyone here to do the transformer so the work got delayed. Weather can also have an effect on what is happening.
When McBride tells us on what building they are going to work, we have a map of transformers and the buildings controlled by what transformer. This is what we use to notify residents as to what is going to happen. Well, this map came from Xcel, but the other morning we found out it is not totally correct. It showed one building connected to a transformer but we found out this building is actually connected to a different transformer.
The main thing is to keep an eye on your front doors for notices as to what we are expecting to happen and how it is affecting you. We are doing our best to keep everyone notified by the information that we receive. Just keep in mind, things can change at the last minute that are out of our control.
Thanks for your understanding!
