Super Bowl Blackout Caused by Electrical Relay Device


Entergy New Orleans says the cause of Super Bowl blackout was due to an electrical relay device triggering when it should not have. The device has been removed from service.

President of Entergy New Orleans Charles Rice says,“While some further analysis remains, we believe we have identified and remedied the cause of the power outage and regret the interruption that occurred during what was a showcase event for the city and state.”
