Teton Village/Airport Outage Update – 4:46pm
Jackson, WY (2-8-17 4:46 pm) Teton Village/Airport Outage Update
Power has been re-routed to most areas surrounding the airport. The airport is fully operational with their own back up generation.
Crews also began setting temporary wooden poles in an effort to start replacing the 17 downed steel transmission poles.
Crews also worked on stabilizing the remaining structures on the damaged transmission line.
Crews hope to get some sort of stable, temporary power to Teton Village Fire Department this evening in an effort to help them with their emergency coordination of the area.
We have the manpower and equipment assistance of 5 neighboring utilities: High Plains Power, Idaho Falls Power, Fall River Rural Electric, Bonneville Power, and Wasatch Energy, along with the crews from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. We truly appreciate the patience, support and understanding of this community we are proud to serve.
