The power is back on in Washington after an equipment failure caused a number of outages yesterday. Alliant Energy’s Justin Foss says the outage affected around 1,100 customers and some of the stop lights near Washington’s downtown at about 8:30. He explains that an issue with a transformer near North Iowa Ave and West 2nd St caused the outage and the subsequent pole fire. Foss adds they appreciate the calls from customers, which helped them pinpoint the problem and resolve the issue within a half hour.
