Xcel, the U, has announced that outages at its Xcel Energy network are caused by the EM wave that struck the country on December 12th, 2017.
It said it has restored power to its customers but is experiencing outages in several states.
Xcel said the outage occurred as a result of an electromagnetic energy anomaly.
The outage was caused by a “temporary interruption in the supply of energy generated by an Xcel XC-5C substation,” according to the company.
The substation is located in a residential area of the city of Portland, Oregon, and was not connected to Xcel’s network.
“The temporary interruption in supply caused by an electrical anomaly was corrected on December 17, 2017 and Xcel has restored service to all customers,” the company said.
“There is no risk of further outages.”
