LOAD BANK TESTING JULY 5 & 6
We will be performing generator load bank testing on July 5 & 6, on the following buildings:

Academic Forum
Boehm
Sharadin

This process will not interrupt the electrical service to the building. Noise from the generator running is the most common inconvenience.  This is most noticeable outside, but some occupants may hear a subdued noise if their space is near where the generator is located. The test usually lasts about two hours.
