According to the City, Lubbock Power and Light found another bad arrestor, which caused Saturday morning’s blackout, and was in the process of shifting electrical loads when a power surge occurred.
A widespread blackout hit the Hub City Saturday morning at 2:15. Over 75% of the city was without power
District 1 Lubbock City Councilman Victor Hernandez this morning released a wide-ranging statement that states why he is in favor of increasing electrical rates for Lubbock Power and Light customers.
For the average home using 1,000 kilowatt-hours, the full proposed increase would have added $6.94 as of July 1st, and another increase of $2.51 as of October 1st.
