Substation– Switchover Scheduled for 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 13, 2018


The transformer equipment failure that occurred on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at the Sunflower Interconnection substation required a mobile transformer from Liberal, Kansas to re-establish the interconnection tie to the transmission grid while the failed equipment was replaced.

Sunflower Electric / Western Cooperative have completed repairs and testing on the permanent transformer.

The switchover from the temporary transformer to the permanent transformer originally scheduled for September 7, 2018 has now been scheduled for 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 13, 2018. A service interruption is not anticipated during the switchover. However, an outage is possible. Please make necessary arrangements.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as the necessary repairs were made safely.
