Power Restored to 19,000 After Wind Farm Trips Offline
POWER RESTORED TO 19,000 AFTER WIND FARM TRIPS OFFLINE: Approximately 19,258 Maui customers lost power today at 12:34 p.m. for about 20 minutes when the Auwahi Wind Farm tripped offline resulting in a sudden and severe loss of wind generation on Maui Electric's system. The electrical system, which runs optimally at 60 hertz, dropped to about 15 hertz when 20.7 megawatts of power from Auwahi Wind went offline. As a result, Maui Electric was forced to load shed customers in order to protect and stabilize Maui's electrical grid. Customers affected included parts of Lahaina, Kihei, Kula, Pukalani, Speckelsville and Makawao to Hana. All customers were brought back online at 12:57 p.m. according to Maui Electric communications specialst, Shayna Decker.
