HECO restores power to all customers

By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:38 p.m. HST, Mar 07, 2011

Hawaiian Electric Co. management and non-union crews have restored power to all customers on Oahu, a utility spokesman said.

Earier today, HECO said about 50 customers remained without power since Friday's storm and another 20 customers lost power this morning in Manoa when a car knocked down a utility pole on East Manoa Road at about 3 a.m., said HECO spokesman Darren Pai.

The Manoa accident initially left about 200 customers without power.

Negotiations to resolve a strike called during a large power outage Friday went past midnight last night, Pai said. The talks are to resume with a federal mediator today.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1260 went out on strike at 3:30 p.m. Friday, while 8,000 homes were without power because of a storm.

Management and non-union crews will be working all this week to restore utility poles and lines along Fort Weaver Road. 

Motorists are advised that one lane heading towards Ewa Beach will be blocked from 7:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. through Wednesday.

Customers who experience power problem should call HECO's trouble line at 548-7961.
