FAQs

  • Q: Could this happen to customers more than once?

    Yes, but it is unlikely. When load shedding occurs, the electric companies would disconnect as many customers as necessary and then restore them when rolling blackouts begin. Rolling blackouts disconnect blocks of customers in rotating sequences and would continue until the utilities are able to bring supply and demand back in balance.
