Power Restored To 14K Customers In Denver, Lakewood

Xcel Still Trying To Determine Cause Of Outage

Electricity has been restored to 14,000 customers in Denver and Lakewood after a nearly three-hour outage Tuesday afternoon, an Xcel Energy spokesman said.

Xcel still doesn't know what caused the outage about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, but power returned about 2:11 p.m., Stutz said. The utility is investigating the cause.

The outage impacted customers in an area bounded by Alcott Street to Miller Street and 10th Avenue to Yale Avenue.

On a freezing day, the outage could have impacted residents whose homes have electric-powered heating.

Stutz said electrical outages can also impact people in natural gas-heated homes who have an electronically controlled furnace.
