Lake Placid will have 4-hour power outage Sept. 17

LAKE PLACID — All Lake Placid Municipal Electric customers will experience a power interruption that is estimated to last four hours, beginning at midnight and ending at 4 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17.

Any changes related to the outage will be posted on the village’s website and Facebook page.

This outage is necessary to transfer the incoming 115 kilovolt transmission line to a new receiving structure at the Lake Placid Municipal Electric substation on Old Military Road. Should a problem on Lake Placid Municipal Electric’s 115 kilovolt system occur, recent upgrades should result in fewer customers being affected and for shorter durations of time.
