BULLHEAD CITY, AZ – On Tuesday, January 2 at 6:15 a.m., a school bus accidentally backed into a power pole causing two electrical lines to make contact with each other triggering the Silver Creek Substation breaker to open and cause an outage. This outage affected approximately 665 members in Mohave Electric Cooperative’s (MEC) service area expanding from Merrill Ave., Silver Creek Rd., Arcadia Cir., and Arcadia Bay. MEC crews responded, closed the breaker, and restored power to members at 7:12 a.m. There was no damage to the pole or electrical lines.
