Equipment Failure Blamed For Sunday Night Power Outage

Gldn

A Sunday night power outage left much of Golden sitting in the dark.

Diane Tammen with B.C Hydro in Cranbrook has word on the cause "We had a piece of equipment fail in town - on 12th Street north - and a faulty connector caused a fault on our lines. One of our two feeders in Golden was out - affecting about 1,800 customers."

The lights were back on just before 11pm, after about 90 minutes of darkness.
