So GPL’s resident meteorologist works for a company called MISO, they play a significant role in the allocation of power within our region. She mentioned this morning the entire power grid the help manage is operating at full power and apparently this is not common. She mentioned this has been going on since the 14th and was extended to tomorrow night. Interestingly she also mentioned the tidbit @Zwak brought up earlier today about Texas being on its own grid and there are a couple other states – NY and FL – who also follow that model. Those particular regions don’t have the ability to share power (in & out) as other regions do.

I wondered where some local legislators have been getting their information about the levels of each type of power source for the grid. Thanks GE for posting that link!
