Telluride Outages - Early May 2019

Telluride Outages Planned for Early May 2019

As the snow is melting in Telluride, San Miguel Power work crews have an opportunity to quickly and safely make electric infrastructure improvements that are critical to ongoing development projects in the downtown area.  There is a narrow window of time to do this work as the tourist season is fast approaching.
 
For these reasons, we are scheduling three electrical equipment upgrade projects during the first two weeks of May.  This work requires multiple power outages as well as alleyway and driveway closures, and we believe that working within this timeframe will cause the least inconvenience for local residents, businesses and other organizations.
 
To further minimize inconvenience, we offer the following outage details in advance of the working days. Please use this information to prepare yourself and share this information with anyone you feel may want to know.
