HEA plans Thursday morning outage

Homer Electric Association is planning a scheduled outage for the Soldotna and K-Beach Road area Thursday morning.

According to an HEA press release, the outage will begin at approximately 3 a.m. and last about 10 minutes. The outage is taking place in the early morning hours in order to minimize the impact on residential and business members.

The areas affected by the outage will be:

■ City of Soldotna, from the HEA Generation Plant on the Sterling Highway and Boundary Avenue west to Skyview High School and all arterial roads, including Funny River.

■ Kenai Spur Highway from the Sterling Highway “Y” intersection to Knight Drive.

■ K-Beach Road from the Sterling Highway intersection in Soldotna along K-Beach Road and all arterial roads to Helmsman Avenue (approximately Mile 13.5).

HEA will be making automated calls to all members that will be affected by the planned outage.

HEA says the planned outage is necessary to complete work on the installation of a new transmission line between Nikiski and Soldotna.

HEA members are reminded to protect all sensitive electronic equipment in your home and business.
