“As of 10:45 a.m., TVA has withdrawn its Step 50 load shedding requirement. The weather remains cold and power demand may fluctuate. We ask you to be prepared, and we may have to do so at any time without notice, and we are currently powering all of our suspended customers, according to MLGW.

Service may be interrupted for 30 minutes and customers may experience an average of 2-3 outages per day.

All customers within MLGW’s territory may be affected.

Water pumping stations, sewage treatment plants, hospitals and airports are excluded from these outages, according to MLGW.

The MLGW will cut power every 30 minutes by the specified circuit group starting with the specified group and progressing through the list for the duration of the order.

Once ordered, MLGW will announce the expected start time of the blackout and the group number that will be suspended first. Suspensions then continue in numerical order until all groups are affected, then resume from the original group.

Example: “From 6:00 pm (date), MLGW will start Group 3 and implement load reduction actions in other areas as needed in the order of 30 minutes.”

The “starting group” of subsequent events is determined by where the last reduction action from the previous event ended.

For example, if a power outage occurs in group 7 and the rolling blackout order is lifted after power is restored, the next reduction action will start in group 8.
