To address repeated power outages in the Pointers Run area, BGE has installed several pieces of automatically-operated equipment, called reclosers, at strategic points along the overhead portion of the supply feeder. When a problem occurs, this equipment isolates the problem which results in an interruption to the smallest number of customers possible.
BGE completed the construction work in late October, and the remote electronic switching capability was enabled in early November. When an outage occurred along Pindell School Rd. on November 18, the newly installed equipment operated to isolate the problem. The equipment successfully prevented customers on the main feeder, including those in Pointer’s Run, from being subjected to a sustained outage.
BGE expects these improvements to address the issues that residents in this neighborhood had been experiencing. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the Village Manager at 410-531-1749 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
