HECO repair work to affect approximately 3,200 customers in Manoa

MANOA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

On Monday, Hawaiian Electric crews announced they will be making emergency repairs to electrical equipment at the Woodlawn Substation on East Manoa Road happening Monday evening.

The work is scheduled to take place between 11:30 p.m. Monday and 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. 

For the safety of work crews, power to the substation must be shut down, resulting in a power outage that will affect approximately 3,200 customers in the area between Lowrey Avenue and the back of Manoa Valley. Customers in the vicinity of Waioli Tea Room and Manoa Hillside Estates will also be affected. 

To prepare for this planned outage, Hawaiian Electric advises customers to turn off and unplug all unnecessary appliances or equipment. Most electronic equipment draws power even when turned off and should be unplugged to avoid possible damage.  In addition, Hawaiian Electric recommends keeping refrigerators and freezers closed as much as possible during the outage period to maintain proper food temperatures. 

Hawaiian Electric apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks customers for their understanding.
