Beat the Peak - Better Days Ahead

3:57PM February 17, 2021

4 p.m. We are still playing defense with the power grid, but we are close to being “out of the woods.” Other areas aren’t so blessed. Associated is doing a great job balancing its spinning plates. Here is a link to see power outages in the United States. There are still millions without power. One member of Team SEMO has a son in Houston without power. It is a mess in other states. https://poweroutage.us/

7 a.m. We continue to monitor the load to avoid rolling blackouts. We are prepared should an event occur to the electric grid this morning. We expect a peak between 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Please continue to reduce your electrical usage if possible. The good news is you are saving money by saving energy. Thank you.

Will we lose power?

At this point there is no time frame set for rolling blackouts to begin or if they will happen at all for SEMO Electric. The messages during the past few days have been an effort to help you reduce bill shock and help reduce pressure on the electrical system. If it does get to the point rolling blackouts need to be implemented, we will provide notice as soon as we have been informed. The size of the blackout area will depend on how much system load needs to be shed.

Why is it called a rolling blackout?

It is called a rolling blackout for a reason. The goal is to reduce load by impacting a minimal amount of the system for a designated amount of time and then returning power to the affected area and moving to a different area of the system. The way this will be accomplished on our systems will be by deenergizing the entire substation and not just picking and choosing among individual members. The outage should last no longer than an hour and then the substation will be re-energized and another substation in the system will be turned off.

Why is it happening?

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer for this situation other than an extreme amount of cold weather affecting a large region of the country at one time. One more thing to keep in mind is that the electrical grid is very complex and involves many parts and the aforementioned cold weather is affecting multiples of these parts at one time.

When?

As stated earlier there has been no directive to shed load at this time, so we are only providing this information to be proactive. Rest assured that if the plan has to be put into motion, we will post the notification here and, on our website, as soon as possible. We will do everything in our power to minimize the event to the best of our ability.

What can I do?

Please continue to be safe and save energy when possible. Thank you for your continued support. The employees (Team SEMO) of SEMO Electric Cooperative, M&A Electric Power Cooperative and Associated Electric Cooperative take pride in providing safe and reliable energy to you, the member. Together, with all of us doing our part, we will make it through this event just like we have in the past.

Beat the Peak - Rolling Blackouts

7:36AM February 16, 2021

7 a.m. At this time, it is possible we will have to shed load in the next few hours as load is rising. We don't know for sure as things are changing minute by minute. The first substation would be Frisco. The blackout will last less than one hour. The next few hours reman critical for the energy grid to avoid more rolling blackouts. Please reduce energy use.

Winter Storm - Keeping Fiber Flowing

12:41PM February 11, 2021

It's cold and windy as Team SEMO tries to keep the lights on and the fiber flowing. We need to pray for the sun to shine for a few hours to melt ice off of power lines and fiber lines to reduce galloping.

Winter Storm - Galloping Power (and Fiber) Lines

8:16AM February 11, 2021

Galloping power lines are an issue at this time. Galloping will cause flilckers. What causes galloping power lines? High winds and freezing rain cause power lines to gallop. Galloping occurs when freezing rain creates icicles and odd-shaped ice on lines. High winds push on the icicles and lifts lines up, creating a galloping, or jumping, motion. See galloping lines: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqiFJt2WbpY

From the Mother Ship... Prepare for Cold Weather!

6:14PM February 08, 2021
