Broken insulator puts Bedford in the dark

-A A +A

Outage affects 3,500 customers

By John Barnhart

A broken insulator knocked out power to much of Bedford late Wednesday afternoon.

    According to Jeff Weddle, the city’s public services director, the outage occurred when a glass/porcelain insulator broke at the city’s Mosley substation, located off Patterson Mill Road. This disconnected the 69,000 volt line that delivers power from Appalachian Power to the substation.
