Fargo Power Outage Investigation

Posted: Updated:
There still is no word on how long it will take to get to the bottom of recent power outages for XCEL Energy customers in North Fargo.

Two of the three North Dakota Public Service Commissioners were in town Thursday to discuss the formal investigation that's underway. 

Commission Chairman Brian Kalk called for the investigation after the two power outages last weekend and another on Monday night. 

Kalk said his focus will be on XCEL'S response time. 

"Once the outage happens, how quick did they get out there to respond, did they have the right amount of crews in place and is that part taking place?" said Kalk. 

The two weekend outages are being blamed on equipment failure. 

Monday's was caused by a contractor who cut an underground line.
