Power outage set for Aug. 4 to upgrade
The University is currently upgrading the power distribution system for the
main campus. The project includes installation of a new main transformer, high
voltage circuit breaker and new distribution switchgear at the main substation
on Lomas Blvd.
When the project is complete, the campus will be much less vulnerable to electrical
failures and outages.
On Saturday, Aug. 4, the contractor will be disconnecting the PNM high voltage
feed that serves the substation in order to connect the new equipment. The outage
will affect all of main campus as well as Physics and Astronomy, Facility Planning,
Physical Plant and Safety (SHEA) north of Lomas.
The outage is scheduled to begin at 4 a.m. and will last up to 24 hours. Telephone,
security and fire alarms, CIRT network and police services will be operational.
Faculty and staff are being asked to make alternate arrangements for electronic
equipment, refrigerators, freezers and other affected equipment during the shutdown.
Contact Bill Tryens at the Physical Plant with any special concerns, 277-1141 or email@example.com.
