The added electricity on sunny days has seemed in some cases to peak the voltage. That has been causing breakers for three phase equipment to flip off. In Gibbon this means that a business such as Metal Cutting, or the GFW School or the city’s water plant can experience a stopping of electricity until someone goes in and flips the breaker back on.
