Hi everyone –  me again - in order to finish up the high voltage power (12kV) electrical work that got started during Spring Break, a Building 1 power shutdown is necessary to make complicated and dangerous power disconnects and reconnects to a new load center.   We asked Hensel Phelps and Decker Electric to schedule the power shut down so as to minimize any impacts on the campus . . . and next wee was determined the best time to get this work done.

Building 1 will be without power starting on Thursday, June 3, at 7 a.m. thru Sunday, June 6, at 5 p.m.  (total planned outage =46 hours).  

This means Buildings 1 will have no lights, no heat, no air circulation, no power at electrical outlets.

Main campus will have no heat and no hot water.   But main campus will have telephone, data services, and computer internet capability during this outage period because the main ITS servers in Building 1will be running off of generator power.
If you work in Building 1 - on your last work day prior to next Thursday -  I would strongly suggest the following: 

  1. Make arrangements to remove anything that must be sustained by a cooled or heated regulated temperature.
  2. Remove all perishable items from refrigerators. 
  3. Power down all office equipment to include computers, printers and copiers before leaving your work areas.
  4. Turn lights and other power switches off.

If you are working in any other building on main campus – I would strongly suggest you bring enough clothes to ‘layer’ yourself during possible early morning chilly periods next Thursday and Friday.  
Pacific Heights, Loma Chica, and the Childcare Center will not be affected by this power outage.

If you have questions or are in need of any support as you get ready for this power outage, you can contact the Skyline Swinerton Team Chief, Jack Herbert, at ext 7037, or

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.   Take care  -
