Utility plans June 1 power outage

Scott Sullivan
The firm first planned the outage Saturday, April 25, from 2 to 7 a.m., but postponed it after complaints from local businesses and residents about the effect of a weekend closing in a resort community.

Consumers Energy has rescheduled a power outage it first planned in April for Monday, June 1, from midnight until approximately 6 a.m.

Affected will be areas in Saugatuck and Laketown townships, plus the cities of Saugatuck and Douglas.

The utility has mailed notices to 4,251 affected energy customers between 141st and 127th avenues north to south, and from 62nd Street west to Lake Michigan.

Consumers says the shutdown is needed to repair a broken switch on its main Saugatuck-Douglas substation that houses 46,000 volt lines prior to high loads this summer season.
