Unplanned power outages have been reported in Northern Taiwan, most recently this
morning at an Executive Yuan office building in New Taipei City.
The power went out for five minutes at the Executive Yuan’s Xin Zhuang United Office Building at 11:09 a.m. on Tuesday.
Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) has determined that the outage was caused by the electricity infrastructure in the building itself and not in Taipower’s system, Executive Yuan deputy spokeswoman Chang Hsiu-chen (張秀禎) said on Tuesday.
The day before, when temperatures soared to the highest yet in 2017, an estimated 17,000 households in Xinzhuang and Taishan of New Taipei saw their fuse blow three times in rapid succession. [FULL STORY]
