UPDATE FROM LP&L: Power has now been restored to all customers. If you are experiencing an interruption of service, please text or email us at lightsout@lpandl.com. You can also call our 24-hour Emergency Operations Center at 806-775-2509 , however due to high call volume, you may experience longer than normal hold times. We know experiencing an interruption of service is very frustrating, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as our crews worked to fix the issue.

The outage is related to substation equipment at the Chalker substation. At this time, a cause has not been identified. A total of 5,072 customers have been impacted. 500 of those customers’ power was restored at 7:15 and we expect to gradually restore power to all affected customers as the substation is reenergized.

There was a large power outage in South Lubbock Tuesday that had officers directing traffic at several major intersections including the following:

S loop & Slide
74th & Quaker
82nd & Frankford
69th & Slide
73rd & Slide
66th & Indiana

LP&L says this outage is not the result of a power shortage.
