UPDATE: comment from Entergy:
“Working on a press release. Outages happened when there’s peak usage. Around 20,000 customers will have forced outages at a time for no more than 60 minutes until usage declines.”
Thank you very much for your patience and your voluntary conservation of power as we work through this difficult situation. The company took this action at the direction of our reliability coordinator, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, as a last resort to prevent a more extensive, prolonged power outage that could severely affect the reliability of the power grid. All Entergy operating companies participated in the outages, as well as all other MISO members.
We continue to face challenges related to the cold temperatures, so please be mindful of your electricity usage to help prevent the need for any additional forced outages. We’re not out of the woods yet, so please continue to conserve energy.
