Rebuilding after the fire

The Black Forest fire, the most destructive in Colorado history, began June 11. The entire area is in the Mountain View Electric Association service territory. By the second day, as the fire raged through homes and businesses, it also damaged transmission lines supplying power to five substations, affecting nearly 11,000 MVEA meters. The transmission lines owned by Tri-State Generation and Transmission, MVEAís power supplier, were quickly rerouted; and electricity was restored to 8,000 meters within an hour. MVEA crews continued to work around evacuated areas to further restore power to an additional 1,500 meters over the next couple of days.Tri-State finished its repairs to three sections of infrastructure by Monday morning, June 17, and reenergized its transmission lines.
