    The City/Stadium Grid probably saw Aggreko's clean continous power and new something was wrong.................... threw a breaker in response!

    Maybe Aggreko should have been hired to provide power for the whole shebang!

    Hey guys, just an update. I'm back in town after a long week of tear down and loading 72 semi sized truckloads of equipment. The first week back was kinda rough..

    Anyways, the power outage for the game was not us. We had two megs backup in place for the stadium after some things blew friday night during rehearsal. Basically what happened is there was two utility feeds to the stadium an there is a tie breaker that connects them together. Something with the breaker popped and only half of the grid(utility) was functional to the stadium. We had the generator running and in place with cables already ran, but because of that tie breaker, it was never switched over to the generator. The guy that had the key to the transformer vault room was never foun, so we coulnd't switch it over to the generator even if we wanted to!.

    Gotta love having all the people, equipment, and know how in place and not being able to use it.
