Entergy accepts blame for Super Bowl blackout

quote:

Source of Super Bowl Power Outage Traced to Relay Device

New Orleans, La. – Entergy New Orleans, Inc. announced today that it has traced the cause of Sunday’s outage to an electrical relay device.

The device was specifically installed to protect the Mercedes-Benz Superdome equipment in the event of a cable failure between the switchgear and the stadium.

While the relay functioned without issue during a number of high-profile events – including the New Orleans Bowl, the New Orleans Saints–Carolina Panthers game, and the Sugar Bowl – during Sunday’s game, the relay device triggered, signaling a switch to open when it should not have, causing the partial outage.

This device has since been removed from service and new replacement equipment is being evaluated.

Seems odd they would be down. The NFL and CBS made more money due to the delay.
