Rolling blackouts coming this week to the Midwest
Locally, NineStar Electric sent an email to members referencing the Midcontinent Independent System Operator warning about the possibility of rolling blackouts during peak usage this summer. The letter warns increased usage could lead to an energy shortage. "If the shortage is too great, the grid system could collapse, creating wide scale outages that could last for many hours or days similar to what occurred in Texas two winters ago or in New York City several years ago."

Re: Rolling blackouts coming this week to the Midwest
I live in AZ.

This month's electric bill said we could save money by putting our thermostat at 76 or 78.

We have it set at 80 or 81 (very comfortable with 30% humidity). If we turned it down to 76 or 78 the AC would be running all day.

I don't know anyone who has it set lower than 79.
Are they actually trying to get people to use MORE electicity?

Ah yes, the rolling outages that is all too familiar in other crashing nations (along with rising gas costs, inflation, food shortages, etc).

I remember the first time hearing about these planned 'rolling outages' in Venezuela. Then in California.

Many said that if Biden got installed, our nation would witness the same and here we are.

Thread: Venezuela begins 2010 with electricity rationing

Ah! Trouble in the workers paradise


Oil-rich Venezuela ushered in 2010 with new measures rationing electricity use in malls, businesses and billboards, as Hugo Chavez's government aimed to save power amid a crippling drought.

The new regulations came into effect January 1, with businesses required to comply with reduced consumption limits and authorities warning of forced power cuts and rate hikes if the measures are not followed.

A decree published on Christmas Eve states that commercial centers may operate from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm on the electricity grid, but beyond that establishments would have to operate off-grid, using their own generators.

Venezuela is flush with oil -- the country's primary export -- and natural gas, but relies mainly on hydroelectric generation to meet domestic energy demand.

With the country in a widespread drought, late last year Chavez announced a sweeping campaign to reduce widespread energy "waste," stressing that rationing was necessary to avoid a systemic "collapse."

Shopping centers in Caracas Saturday opened at the appointed new hour, although industry representatives called for extending the time frame, arguing that night-time energy consumption is less than 10 percent of the total.

The power crunch is expected to have an impact on a wide variety of businesses, including cinemas, casinos and bingo halls.

Establishments failing to comply with the measures could face outages for a period of 24 hours, and up to 72-hour suspensions "in case of recidivism," according to the decree.

The regulation also orders businesses to institute savings plans aimed at shedding consumption by at least 20 percent, a measure that will be evaluated monthly by the newly-created ministry of electricity.

Tariff surcharges of up to 20 percent could be imposed on violators.

Rationing is also to apply to lighted advertisements.

Introductory measures were evident in Caracas last month, with the neon signs that traditionally welcome Christmas left unlit.

The state-controlled aluminum and steel industries halted some of their production lines in order to reduce energy consumption by some 560 megawatts (MW).

Electricity demand in Venezuela is more than 16,500 MW, far higher than what is currently generated. Experts say the power sector requires 18 billion dollars in investment through 2014.

In 2009 there were four nationwide blackouts, with daily failures common in several cities.

 Quoting: mathetes


Thread: Socialist Venezuela suffers another power cut that leaves much of the country in darkness:

A new blackout across large parts of crisis-hit Venezuela, including the capital Caracas, forced many to spend another night in the dark on Tuesday.

The electricity shortage – the biggest in a week – hit a large section of the capital, with social media posts from residents across the country suggesting significant areas in at least 20 of the 23 states of Venezuela were also affected.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77116287


I wonder what RINO Marco Rubio knew about Venezuela's blackouts:

Thread: Venezuela Vice President blames Marco Rubio for country wide power outage.

In a press conference, the Vice President denounced that Venezuela's blackout was caused by far-right groups encouraged by U.S. politicians. Among these, she referred to Marco Rubio, a Republican Senator from Florida hostile to the Venezuelan government, who posted a tweet just 3 minutes after the blackout began.

"We want to send a message to the international community: just three minutes after the attack, Marco Rubio, once again, as a crime reporter, reported on the event that was happening in our country," Rodriguez said and added "Mr. Rubio, I want to inform you that, in a few hours, the Venezuelan people and the international community will know the truth. We'll know that your rotten hands - supported by your lackeys who permanently attack the Venezuelan people - are involved in this"

Thread: California heat spurs 1st rolling power outages since 2011

California on Friday ordered rolling power outages for the first time since 2011 as a statewide heat wave strained its electrical system.

The California Independent System Operator (California ISO), which manages the power grid, declared an emergency shortly after 6:30 p.m. and directed utilities around the state to shed their power loads.

Pacific Gas & Electric, the state's largest utility, tweeted that it would turn off power to about 200,000 to 250,000 customers in rotating outages for about an hour at a time. Other utilities were told to do the same.

Thread: California orders rolling blackouts for up to 250,000 homes and businesses as heat wave grips the state

California utility companies are rolling out a massive blackout across the state that could impact some 250,000 homes and businesses, in an effort to curb electricity shortages as more people stay home during the pandemic.

Grid managers last implemented such a power cut in 2001, when the state was suffering from an electric crisis. On late Friday, the California Independent System Operator declared a Stage 3 emergency, Bloomberg reports.

Residents in the state still took to the beach on Friday, however, enjoying the blazing heat.

Reported 6 years ago. Look familiar? seems Venezuela was a testing ground before global-wide implementation:

Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro announces rolling blackouts for 40 days as part of new measures to conserve power.

Re: Rolling blackouts coming this week to the Midwest
The grid is fine but it is under attack by solar and wind power inputs.

All USA energy security is under threat by incompatible solar and wind and if they move to electric cars it will only get worse with all travel security also under threat by the same monstrosity energy creation.

And the truth is the wind warms are much more destructive to the environment than gas plants. The amount of materials needed to build them destroys so much land. And then they turn around and destroy the reliability of our grids.

We must stop the green energy attacks on America and all the wicked people behind them. They are endangering us all.
