Equipment failure causes power outage in Athens
ATHENS, AL (WAFF) - An equipment failure at the Peach Orchard Substation has caused a power outage that affected approximately 14,500 customers Friday.
Amy Golden, Customer Relations Manager, says a lightening arrestor on a main transformer failed, which caused a loss of three substations.
Crews worked for several hours to get the substations back online and restore service to the area.
