Power outage rescheduled for campus, some Western Carolina power customers

A scheduled power outage for Western Carolina University and a portion of Western Carolina power customers has been rescheduled due to the extremely cold temperatures this week.

The power outage was scheduled for Friday, Jan. 5, and is tentatively rescheduled for March during spring break. The purpose of the outage is for an equipment upgrade. It will affect most WCU campus buildings (including the Health and Human Sciences Building) and the Long Branch Road circuit on Western Carolina Power (from NCCAT to Wake Robin Road).
