Power restored to Maui customers

Power was restored Saturday evening to about 22,000 Maui customers who experienced an outage earlier in the day, Maui Electric Co. spokesperson Shayna Decker said Sunday.

At around 3:55 p.m. Saturday, about 22,000 customers in parts of Upcountry, Lahaina, Kahului, Haiku and East Maui lost power when wind energy from an independent wind farm on the island suddenly dropped and affected frequency of energy on the electrical grid. Decker said this caused the grid to automatically shed loads on various circuits to protect the system from damage.

MECO restored power to most customers by 5:50 p.m. Saturday and brought a remaining 1,000 customers in Kahului, Haiku and Hana back online by 6:40 p.m.
