As of 9:24 a.m., the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), Cleco's transmission regulator, ordered the power restored in the Acadiana area. The company has discontinued its controlled power interruptions, and the power system has stabilized.
While the exact cause of the SPP order is still under investigation, Cleco's system is operating under normal conditions. Cleco does not anticipate additional controlled power interruptions at this time. If the situation changes, Cleco will inform the Acadiana media as quickly as possible.
