Xcel Energy will be meeting with the Public Service Commission Friday to talk about a series of power outages in Fargo that were not weather related.
In a recent rate case, Xcel promised to make investments in North Dakota to shore up its reliability.
"We want to make sure that the investment that we've directed the company to do is actually having a positive impact," said Commission chairman Brian Kalk. "There have been outages since this one -- but they were all weather-related, from what I saw. This one, I think, begs the question: Why didn't the system work?"
