CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – An outage which interrupted electric services for almost 20,000 people in the Orange Park, Oakleaf Plantation and Argyle Forest areas Tuesday morning has been restored.
The Clay Electric outage map shows 18,390 services were affected at the height of disruption. Services were restored in just over an hour.
On Facebook, the co-operative said there was a problem with a transmission line that feeds two substations.
Kathy Richardson with Clay Electric said a fault current in a substation opened a transmission breaker, causing the outage. It’s a protective system reaction feature and everything worked as it was supposed to, according to Richardson.
