We Energies transformer goes down, heats UWM up

A We Energies transformer went down Aug. 25, causing the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to heat up due to the transformer's role in providing the campus air conditioning.

"The transformer draws water from Lake Michigan," said UWM Chancellor Carlos Santiago.

That water is then used in university air conditioning units, he said. Because of the muggy conditions, people at the university were a little warm.

We Energies is working to repair the transformer.

"It's a little muggy (in here), but at least it's not 95 degrees outside," Santiago said.
