Rolling blackout hits again
Parts of the Stanford Research Park and south Palo Alto lost power
at 10:30 a.m. today as the state's Independent System Operator triggered
another series of rolling blackouts.
The ISO ordered Palo Alto to reduce electric consumption by 8.4
percent, twice as much as was taken offline Wednesday.
There is no immediate word on how long the current rolling blackout
For a complete list of the city's rotating "blocks," showing the
order of a rolling blackout, go to www.cpau.com,
the Utility Department Web site. There is a place on that page to
click to determine which block your address is part of.
