Tuesday night’s outage was due to a major equipment failure which caused the electrical load to be dispersed throughout Nebraska City Utilities system. Initial safety settings with our system substations could not control the additional electrical load, thereby causing outages on Wednesday and Thursday.
Crews have worked to make adjustments and have reconfigured the substations to handle the additional electrical load as well as completing the major component repairs. We appreciate your patience as we worked through this as quickly and safely as possible. If you experience an outage, please call our 24-hr line at 402-873-3353 or report it on our website HERE!
