      @Mrs. T Rodriguez, these types of issues are usually handled by Facilities Services and not the Power Plant as they only generate power. Your daughter should probably try to put another service request through her RA and have Facilities Services look into her problem again. To report facility problems she or the RA can call the appropriate zone maintenance group: 232-3980.
