Expect Momentary Power Interruptions Friday, Aug. 22, 5-6 a.m.

As part of a safety inspection of Smith’s new campus power system, the campus will experience a few momentary power interruptions between 5 and 6 a.m. Friday, Aug. 22. During that hour, there will likely be four brief outages, each lasting about 4 seconds.

Related testing of Smith’s cogeneration system--commonly called “CoGen"--may also result in the periodic venting of steam above the roof of Facilities Management on West Street. Once the environmentally and economically efficient system is fully engaged, it will produce both electricity and heat for the campus.
