Get out the candles and flashlights; at least you know Wednesday night’s power outage is coming.
At 11 p.m. on Aug. 16, the lights – and television and everything depending on electricity – will be going out for up to an hour as Belmont Light, the town’s utility will begin the process of transferring the current electrical delivery system to one fed through the new Blair Pond substation.
The streets that will be impacted by the outage can be found here.
The work required to connect the substation “has been carefully planned, and Belmont Light does not expect any complications to occur over the approximately one hour period of the outage,” according to a statement from Belmont Light.
Belmont Fire and Police departments and other emergency service have been coordinating with the utility to ensure that the public’s safety will be met.
Call Belmont Light at 617-993-2800 with any concerns or questions.
