The city of Williston is looking into why there have been several power outages in the last few months.
Gary Bitter, an engineer with Progress Energy, has been contacted and he and CJ Zimoski believe in order to isolate and locate the problem, the settings on the recloser will have to be changed. This will not leave the system unprotected; however, it will allow the fuses to blow.
If there is a problem on the city’s system it may cause outages. These outages should be limited to a few blocks at a time rather than the whole town flashing.
