Reducing power consumption in generator-supplied facilities

	What steps are folks taking to maximize run time of emergency
generator equipment and battery in NY facilities currently facing diesel 
supply issues? Are second halves of redundant systems being temporarily
taken off line and non-essential loads being shed in a effort to stretch
the time to failure? In a previous life, such precutions were referred to
as "rigging for reduced electrical power" and proved quite effective.
