The power has been restored to most of the locations that experienced the outage for just over an hour.

Capital Electric Cooperative has reported an intentional power outage in the Bismarck area.

It is not known at this time how long this outage will last.

It is stated this outage was intentional in order to shed load on Western Area Power Administration’s transmission system. Load shedding is performed to prevent the failure of an entire system when the demand for power strains the system.
