Moose Lake asked to conserve power as outage prompts backup generator use

TUESDAY UPDATE -- Moose Lake residents are being asked to conserve power Tuesday after a regulator failed Monday night, leaving some residents in the dark and without heat in below zero temperatures.

According to city officials, the failure was reported at the North Substation around 7:20 p.m. Monday.

The city set up an overnight warming shelter for those without power.

Moose Lake Power crews restored back-up power at approximately 1:45 a.m. Tuesday.

They said until a mobile substation is located and installed, back-up generators will be used to power the city.

Crews will be monitoring the generators 24-hours a day until a permanent solution is found.

"For the time being, we are asking residents to conserve energy by using only essential devices," Moose Lake city officials said.

Moose Lake city leaders plan to share immediate updates on their Facebook page.

Because of the sub-zero temperatures, the Moose Lake Community School will remain the designated warming shelter for future cold-weather related emergencies.
