UPDATE 7:30AM 28AUG23: The electric cable from Groton was repaired as of 6 AM this morning and Fishers Island is now back on Groton Electric power.

The cause for the outage was a cable coming out of the Groton Long Point Substation. A terminator failed and could not be repaired. The final solution was for them to replace about 300 feet of underground cable.

“A big shout out for Groton Electric working all night to repair the electricity supply back to Fishers Island.” FIUC

FIEC chartered a Fishers Island ferry at 6 AM for the fuel truck to deliver and refill the Island generator.

UPDATE 12:30PM 27AUG23: The issue in Groton continues. The Island Generator (by the FIYC) has been turned on. It will provide power to our homes for about 6 hours. At that time the Groton source should be fixed.

There will be another ISLANDWIDE OUTAGE for another hour while the FIUC switches us back from our generator to Groton.

10:30AM 27AUG23: The power is out due to an issue at the source in Groton. When there is more information, it will be shared. The estimated time to repair is unknown at this time.
Thank you for your patience.
