[ARCHIVED] Danville Utilities reports power outage at Brantley substation

Danville Utilities reports a transformer failure at its Brantley substation has left about 1,200 customers without power.

Danville Emergency Management has arranged to use the Salvation Army center on Henry Street as a warming shelter. Any citizen needing a ride to the shelter can call the Emergency Management Office at 799-6535.

The failure occurred around 2:30 a.m. when the transformer bushings were blown, leaving customers in the downtown area, Industrial Avenue, the Cyber Park and U.S. 58 east without power.

“We are in the process of re-routing power from other substations to serve these customers without power.” said Ken Ashworth, director of the power and light division.

Ashworth also said a mobile transformer is being moved from the Whitmell substation to the Brantley substation. He hopes service will be restored later this morning.

Danville Utilities provides natural gas, water, wastewater and telecommunications services in Danville and distributes electricity to approximately 42,000 customer locations in a 500-square-mile service territory covering Danville, the southern third of Pittsylvania County, and small portions of Henry and Halifax counties.
