For Immediate Release on Tuesday, September, 10, 2019



Maintenance Begins Tuesday, September 10, at Brookdale Substation

Over the next few weeks, Moorhead Public Service (MPS) will be applying a coating to the outdoor equipment at our Brookdale Substation. For several years, the chemical de-icing of Interstate 94 (I-94), customarily from November to April, has adversely impacted the operation of this equipment, causing outages for customers in the area, and downtime and additional maintenance for MPS. The coating on the substation equipment should reduce the impact of the de-icing chemicals and increase the reliability of MPS' Brookdale Substation and electric system. Currently, MPS is 99.9955% reliable, which equates to customers seeing an average of 18 minutes of outage per year.
