Sawyer Power Outage Planned

To improve electric reliability, on Friday, December 2, the Upper Peninsula Power Company will undergo a planned electric outage for customers residing and doing business in the Sawyer area. Approximately 1,500 customers who live in this area will experience a three-hour power outage beginning around midnight Thursday until 3 AM Friday (3 hour outage) pending no weather or mechanical issues which would extend the planned outage time.

UPPCO will be putting a mobile transformer in service to perform necessary maintenance which will improve reliability of the system.

A secondary outage will be required within the next few weeks to put the transformer back into service.
