Two Substation Failures Causes 7,000 Vermonters to Lose Power

Two substation failures in Vermont caused 7,000 Green Mountain Power customers to lose electricity Wednesday night. The Dover and Wilmington substations went off line shortly after 6 pm. By 10 pm, Green Mountain Power was able to have Dover customers back on line, but could not give an estimated time of power return to Wilmington customers.
Ironically, earlier on Wednesday, Green Mountain Power applied to the Vermont Public Service Board for a .04% rate decrease to pass savings on to customers resulting from merger with Central Vermont Power Service (CVPS) and the cost-effectiveness of on-going grid upgrade.
