The failure resulted in both the power outages that hit the region amid a sweltering heat wave, the utility tweeted, and that they were investigating the cause.
The current outage is a result of the substation failure we had earlier today. As our crews are working on restoring power, we are also investigating the cause of this outage. We appreciate your patience and understanding. #MyGlendale— Glendale Water & Power (@COGWaterPower) July 25, 2019
The second outage was reported about 4 p.m. and the first happened just five hours before.

The outage was affected customers in the Rossmoyne and surrounding areas. Some businesses in the Montrose neighborhood were in the dark for nearly an hour earlier Wednesday.
