Normally a Westar 34.5 kilovolt loop provides uninterrupted power by automatically switching if a fault is detected but the service was disabled due to construction of Phase IV of the Engineering Complex. This service will return to normal operation in March 2015. Facilities personnel are identifying and remedying isolated cases of building back-up power failure.
