FEC members experience power outage

Approximately 13,000 members of Flathead Electric Co-op (FEC) experienced a power outage shortly before 2 p.m. today when a problem occurred on a Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) transmission line in the Columbia Heights area. That transmission line feeds nine of FEC’s substations, which impact distribution lines throughout the Canyon area down through Kalispell and the eastside of the Flathead Valley. Crews are working to reenergize FEC distribution lines as quickly and safely as possible. We appreciate your patience.
