Cleveland Public Power switching and transformer crews have determined the cause of an early morning outage to about 400 customers was a cable fault. The fault occurred in the W. 41st Street Service Center and was likely related to weather conditions.
Early reports indicated a transformer failure was the cause, but further investigation into the transformer found that it was not the cause.
When outages occur the first job is to restore power to affected customers. Once customers are restored a more thorough investigation into the cause takes place.
Power was interrupted at 4:30 a.m. and restored to the majority of customers by 7:00 a.m., with remaining customers receiving power at 8:14 a.m.
