A daylong power outage is planned Wednesday, Dec. 20, to allow for replacement of one of S&T’s substation transformers that failed earlier this year, resulting in permanent damage.

Power will be restored to all buildings by 8 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 21.
Buildings fed directly by Rolla Municipal Utilities will not be affected. The buildings that will NOT be affected by the power outage include:
