Who turned out the lights?
PRINCETON — The city of Princeton was without electricity for more than an hour early Sunday evening when the Ameren Illinois transmission line bringing electricity into the city went down.
On Monday, Princeton’s Superintendent of Electric Jason Bird said it was about 6 p.m. Sunday when the Ameren line from Hennepin to Princeton, located on the Wyanet/Walnut Blacktop, went down. Typically, if that situation happens, the power source would have been switched automatically to the Kewanee line, but the Kewanee line was down on Sunday for maintenance, Bird said.
As of Monday morning, Bird did not have any details from Ameren Illinois on why the Hennepin to Princeton line went down. The entire town was without power for about 60 to 75 minutes, he said.
