Power restored to Union Power customers

A transmission problem was blamed for an outage that affected about 20,000 Union Power Cooperative customers in four counties Wednesday evening.

Outages were reported about 7:30 p.m. in parts of Union, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg and Stanly counties. Carrie Stroud, a spokeswoman for Union Power, said electricity service was restored by 9:30 p.m.

The outage apparently resulted in some type of problem that prevented Duke Energy from feeding electricity to Union Power’s nine substations.
