PSC To Conduct Review Of Utility Company Outage Procedures

Louisville, KY – Statewide, more than half a million people were left without electricity following the September 14 windstorm. PSC spokesperson Andrew Melnykovych says it's basic procedure to investigate such a unique event.

Clearly it's an event that has never occurred before, at least not in anybody's lifetime and it one of those occurrences you need to try to learn from, because obviously there are lessons in it.

He says PSC commissioners will send a series of questions to each of the utilities, including LG&E and Kentucky Utilities, both of which are owned by E.ON U.S. He says they'll also seek input from local governments.
