GLOSSARY

  • Power Interruption Alert
    When possible, the public would be alerted that load shedding or rolling blackouts are imminent.
  • Load Shedding
    An almost instantaneous cutting of power to customers because demand for electricity has outstripped supply.
  • Voltage Reduction
    If, after other steps to manage capacity have been taken and the demand for electricity continues to exceed generating capacity, the electric utility can reduce voltage by five percent. This reduction essentially stretches out the available supply of electricity to all customers. It is rarely noticed by customers but may affect sensitive electronic equipment.
