What causes my lights to go dim unexpectedly?
Dimming lights may occur when high current motors start. Air conditioners are a good example of motors which will dim the lights. When the lights blink and go completely out for a second or two, this is typically due to a momentary fault condition on the electric system which causes our automatic protection devices at the substation to operate which interrupts the fault condition minimizing damage to the electric system.
