State Faces Rolling Blackouts
As the energy shortage in California worsens, residents may be forced to participate in rolling blackouts to maintain stability.
From The Counter Signal. The California Independent System Operator (ISO) is alerting Californians to be ready for potential rotating power outages this evening, as the hottest weather of the heat wave is forecast to push electricity demand to an all-time high.
The ISO declared an Energy Emergency Alert 2 (EEA) to 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, signaling participants to bid more energy into the market, and allowing the ISO to tap into emergency demand response programs that provide financial incentives for reducing energy use. …
The electricity demand for Tuesday night is forecast at more than 52,000 megawatts, “a new historic all-time high for the grid,” the ISO says. …
The ISO said rotating power outages could help maintain reliability and avoid cascading blackouts. When the ISO determines that supplies are insufficient to meet demand and reserves are exhausted, it would order utilities to begin outages to bring demand back in line with available supplies, it said. …
