Lighting Awareness Week!

It's Lighting Awareness Week! Did you know? A typical lightning flash is about 300 million Volts and about 30,000 Amps. In comparison, household current is 120 Volts and 15 Amps. There is enough energy in a typical flash of lightning to light a 100-watt incandescent light bulb for about three months or the equivalent compact fluorescent bulb for about a year. Take note and stay safe!

CCPPD had an outage last night in NPPD’s substation near the Beemer golf course due to an owl tripping the transformer. This substation feeds Beemer, Wisner, Dodge and three other distribution substations. Thank you to everyone for your patience.
