Re: San Francisco power outages imminent
The view from Palo Alto: ----- Date: Wed, 14 Jun 2000 12:32:44 -0700 STAGE TWO ELECTRIC ALERT! The Cal ISO has declared Stage One and Two Emergencies for today from Noon to 6:00 pm. Demand is exceeding transmission capability in the Bay Area by 250 megawatts. Please reduce electric consumption to the greatest extent possible. If required, Stage 3 (rolling blackouts) may not allow advance notice. You may wish to engage your emergency generators. We will update you as information becomes available. ----- Sent: Wednesday, June 14, 2000 3:26 PM At 2:34 p.m. Palo Alto initiated rolling blackouts to shed 3.3 megawatts of load. Similar action is occurring throughout the Bay Area. Affected outage areas are in residential portions of Block 6 and will be impacted for two hours. Thank you for your efforts.
