Sunday, June 1, 10:00 am – HEA crews completed restoration work related to Saturday’s wind storm at approximately 5:30 am Sunday.  HEA would like to thank its members for their patience during the storm-related outages.  If you do not have power at this time please call the outage hotline at 1-888-8OUTAGE. 

Saturday, May 31, Noon – HEA crews are responding to a large number of power outages today.  The outages are the result of strong winds that are continuing to hit the Kenai Peninsula this afternoon.   As of noon there are approximately 4,000 HEA members without power.  Outage areas include:

  • Large section of the City of Soldotna
  • Forest Drive/St. Theresa (between Soldotna and Sterling)
  • Skyline Drive (Soldotna)
  • Strawberry Road (Soldotna)
  • Aliak/Magic Ave. (Kenai)
  • Halibut Cove
  • Nikiski area (Holt Lamplight, Swanson River Oil Field)
  • Riverview Ave./Kobuk area (Soldotna)
  • Tote Road area (near Kasilof)

In addition to these outages, there are several smaller scattered outages across the Peninsula.  HEA crews are working to restore power as soon as possible, but due to the number of outages and the strong winds, the duration of the outages is likely to be extended.

If you do not have power, please call the outage hotline at 1-888-8OUTAGE.

Weather permitting, the morning outage on August 6th will occur at approximately 10 am and the afternoon outage will occur at approximately 3 pm.

The outages will last about 20 minutes.

HEA crews have restored power along Jakolof Bay Road and are currently working in Seldovia to put that section back on generation.

The area was being served by Gerry Willard Generation Plant, but at approximately 12:45 am Saturday, a fault on the power line interrupted the operation of the generator.

Port Graham and Nanwalek are currently being served by the emergency generator in Port Graham.

If you do not have power, please call HEA’s outage reporting hotline at 1-888-8OUTAGE (1-888-868-8243).

Please remember to always stay away from downed power lines. The lines are extremely dangerous and getting too close to a line can cause serious injury or death.
