Rolling Power Outages

No, not necessarily. Peak Alerts are issued when demand for electricity is nearing a new annual peak. When a new electric peak is established, it may affect future generation and transmission cost. Peak Alerts are ways for members to help hold down electric costs. However, it is possible for a Peak Alert and a Rolling Power Outage notice to occur at the same time. 

The cooperatives in Ohio have generation capacity to supply cooperative loads. However, our system is operating as part of a larger grid. When electricity supply is low, or the high voltage transmission system becomes constrained, rolling outages may be used to help balance the grid to prevent widespread uncontrolled outages.
