Las Vegas Rolling Blackout

  • From: Sean Donelan

Its not just California.

Las Vegas Nevada had a rolling blackout on Monday.  Nevada Power
needed to shed approximately 100 Megawatts of power (10,000
customers) when heat and maintenance outages at power plants
lead to power shortages.  Casinos and other large power consumers
were requested to shed 50 megawatts of load.

In better news New York City believes it has added enough peaker
plants, so NYC will not have power shortages this summer.  However,
as a representative of the Edison Institute pointed in 1999, no
electricity consumer should assume power will never fail (double
negative).
