Xcel Restores Power in Boulder After Outage Left More Than 15,000 Without Power

Power was restored to Boulder after more than 15,000 customers lost power this morning, according to Xcel Energy officials.

About 15,300 customers lost power at around 8:10 a.m. today after a “transmission disturbance,” Xcel officials said. As of 9:39 a.m., Xcel spokesman Mark Stutz said power had been restored to all customers in Boulder.


Stutz said the outage was due to a “transmission disturbance,” but said it is not known at this time what caused the disturbance and that the outage was still under investigation.

There are four Verizon towers down in the Pitkin County area this afternoon. The company called Pitkin County 9-1-1 dispatch this afternoon to see if there has been a power outage. Dispatch says there has not been a power problem. The four towers in the area are in Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, and Glenwood Springs. It’s not clear when the service problems will be resolved.


Woohoo, the corporatocracy!  Hey, let’s have even more deregulation because, you know, these guys are doing such a great job and no problem, right, putting our utilities in their hands?
