October 29, 2018

To address additional issues associated with a main campus electrical breaker, Facilities has moved the scheduled main campus power outage from 6 a.m. Nov. 5 to 5 a.m., Friday Nov. 2.

That means Clemson’s main campus will experience a campus-wide electrical power outage from 5 a.m. until 6:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 as workers replace a primary feed switch.

Officials say this date, will allow staff to restore any systems that may be adversely affected by the 90-minute power outage.

Officials recommend that faculty and staff properly shut down all office computers before leaving for day before the outage to prevent data loss. Verify all power is restored to equipment in your area after the outage is complete, especially refrigerators and freezers. Report any power issues to your maintenance department.

CAUTION: During an electrical outage, no one should attempt to service or repair electrically powered equipment without first contacting University Facilities at 656-2186. Proper lock-out-tag-out procedures must be utilized to avoid the potential for serious injury if the equipment is suddenly re-energized as power will be restored as soon as work is complete.
