Power Spike

A power glitch Thurs­day morn­ing around 1 o’clock caused a spike in cur­rent that many peo­ple may not have even noticed while they slept.

Accord­ing to The Bryan Times, a capac­i­tor at the Lock­wood Road sub­sta­tion detected a surge and acted to reduce it, as it should.

The prob­lem came in when the energy provider also detected the same surge and did the same thing, at the same time.

That over­loaded the capac­i­tor and caused the spike.

Accord­ing to offi­cials, recent weather may have also had a hand in it.
