For the second time this week, a unit at the Maalaea Power Plant tripped offline, causing a load shed sequence
Several areas of Maui experienced temporary power outages this afternoon when a generating unit at the Maalaea Power Plant tripped offline.
Power outages reported in Wailuku and Waiehu last night were likely caused by an accumulation of moisture on electrical equipment.
At this time (9:20 a.m.) there is a small area in Paia without power. Crews are on site however access and flooding in the area is hampering repair efforts.
The heavy rains overnight resulted in isolated power outages in several upcountry locations. Areas affected include small pockets in Piiholo, Olinda, Makawao, Omaopio, and Kaupakalua.
