Oncor will be increasing the capacity of the equipment that serves the Town of Argyle. This requires a planned outage for Argyle residents to safely complete the upgrades. Power will be disrupted starting at 11 p.m. on Friday, August 18 and will remain out until upgrades are completed. The anticipated outage time is no more than 5 hours. Many of you experienced a power outage on Thursday, August 3 from approximately 1:00-9:00 a.m. This equipment upgrade will affect those same homeowners.
Because of the extreme growth in our area, an auto transformer installed a year ago has already reached its maximum capacity. This upgrade will facilitate the installation of two larger auto transformers to meet the current needs while allowing room for expansion.
If you have questions, please contact Oncor at 888-313-4747. If you experience a personal emergency during the power outage, call 911.
An electrical outage is never ideal. However, if the equipment fails it will result in an 18-hour power outage to repair and replace it. Oncor has agreed to complete this project in the middle of the night to provide the least disruption to households and take advantage of lower temperatures.
Oncor greatly appreciates your understanding as they take care of our growing community infrastructure.
