Homes and businesses on K-Beach will be without power next Monday evening for about two hours. Homer Electric Association said the planned outage will start at 6:30 pm and they plan to have power restored around 8:30pm, though it may be back on sooner.
Joe Gallagher with HEA said the cooperative will be making automated calls to homes in the affected area this week, to make sure the outage doesn’t catch anyone off guard.
The area extends from mile 13.5 on K-Beach Road (near the Central Emergency Services station) to mile 16.6 K-Beach Road (near KSRM radio station).
HEA is planning the outage to allow them to install two new power poles.
They encourage residents and businesses to protect all sensitive electronic equipment during the outage.
