Step down transformers,
each serving 1 to 10 houses, reduce the 12,500 volts carried through
power lines to a usable 120/240 volts to power your lights and appliances.
a transformer stops working due to mechanical failure. Usually, though,
the transformer breaks down as the result of a short caused by a
bird or squirrel, accompanied by a loud "pop" at the utility
GEUS crews replace transformers,
equipping them with squirrel/bird guards, as soon as possible after
an outage report comes in.
To report a power outage
24 hours a day call (903) 457-2888.
