Power outage

Recommended Posts

The power to my house is out, but my generator kicked on and automatically switched over! This is the first actual power failure I've had since buying the generator last year. I've conducted periodic tests, but it's just such a great feeling to experience it for real!

Now I'm waiting to see how long before the power comes back on. The generator is fueled by natural gas, so I don't need to worry about refilling anything.

PGE's website says the outage is impacting about 1,000 customers, and estimates repair by 4:30pm.  In the meantime, I still have Internet, TV, and of course my reef tank running perfectly!   😎

Nice to know it all works as hoped!  Glad you didn't have any hiccups with the setup.  Probably good that it happened while you were there the first time so now you can feel more confident when you are away.

It's funny, I got the generator to be prepared for power outages during winter ice or wind storms. I didn't really expect the power to go out in the middle of a clear, sunny, calm autumn day. I'll be curious to hear what caused it.

Yeah, I did find that odd.  You are probably all run underground too so not likely a random pole hit.

I just posted a few mins ago asking for advice on generators! Do you have a link to where you got yours?

I hired Bryant Power Services.  They were great to work with.  Tell them I sent you. :)
