Bullhead City, AZ – Over the weekend MEC crews responded to an outage caused when a vehicle struck MEC equipment at 1:34 am Monday morning. The outage affected 516 members in the Arroya Vista area of Bullhead City.  Power was restored at 3:37 am. “Our crews respond to outages no matter the cause, but a preventable outage, such as a vehicle incident, is an outage sometimes impacting hundreds of members that was avoidable,” said Jerry Hardy, MEC Manager of Engineering and Operations.

Earlier, at 10:38 pm Sunday evening, an outage affecting 653 members was caused when an electrical short occurred in the underground system and a circuit protection device operated in the substation. The outage area was Hwy 95 at Silver Creek Road, east to Bullhead Parkway. MEC crews responded and restored power at 1:24 am Monday morning.
