GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Thousands of Consumers Energy customers in northeast Grand Rapids lost power for a time Monday.
The outage, which stretched roughly from Leonard Street NE to 4 Mile Road and Plainfield Avenue to Dean Lake Avenue, affected some 3,600 Consumers customers at its peak.
Consumers Energy’s interactive outage map shows power went out just after 11 a.m. Service was restored to all but about 640 customers by around noon, and nearly all of those had power back by around 3 p.m.
The outage was affecting the Secretary of State branch office on Plainfield near 4 Mile. SoS tweeted that it couldn’t process transactions there. It was sending people with appointments to the 28th Street or Wyoming branches.
The outage was blamed, at least in part, on an equipment failure, the nature of which was not specified.
