The planned outage is part of an improvement project to install new equipment in that area.

As part of this project, periodic outages will be scheduled through October to replace several switchgears. A combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate electrical equipment, switchgears provide continued reliability of the electrical supply.

Should there be any questions or concerns, contact Maui Electric directly at 1-877-871-8461.

    This comes as a bit of a precedent…that MECO has ever announced in a public forum a planned outage. They have been very good about coming around to the effected homes, leaving notices but this is still a first to my knowledge. Good idea!

    They have been good to their word and the work was completed and power restored in just over 3 hours. It should be emphasized that this is not a precedent…Molokai MECO crews have been very prompt and dedicated in dealing with our outages, regardless of the weather or hour.
