Power outage reported for 1,660 DTE Energy customers near Ann Arbor

By Cindy Heflin

Power was restored at 9:40 a.m. Tuesday for about 1,600 DTE Energy customers northwest of Ann Arbor after an outage of about two hours, the utility said.

Equipment failure caused the power to go out at 7:49 a.m. said DTE spokesman Scott Simons. Weather was not believed to be a factor, he said.

The utility’s power outage map showed service out in an area stretching from east of North Wagner Road to Zeeb Road.


The area of the power outage is shown in brown.

If only those new smart meters were installed, as mentioned in yesterday's news, then the power would have been restored in 1 hour and 45 minutes instead of 2 hours.

I like DTE's map utility. If they could tie that to a restoration estimate, that would be useful.

Indeed. That's been corrected.
