North Georgia E.M.C. And TVA Rolling Blackouts

WZQZ Radio –

The Tennessee Valley Authority and some of the utilities it provides power to will be conducting rotating outages on Friday. North Georgia EMC is one of the TVA cooperatives that is participating in the rolling blackouts, and this will affect people with NGEMC power today in the area.

The rolling blackouts are being done because of extreme load conditions and are expected to last about 15 minutes.

TVA said: The Tennessee Valley Association has called on all distributors of TVA power to begin rolling blackouts. The blackouts will impact members for 15 minutes before power is restored. We apologize for the inconvenience to our members.
Your household can assist in reducing the system load which has triggered the rolling blackouts by taking the following steps.
 • Lower your thermostat by 2 degrees.
 • Turn off and unplug unnecessary appliances and electronics.
 • Delay using large appliances and electronics.
As your neighbors, we understand the many challenges you face when your electricity is interrupted. We appreciate your patience while we are subject to this TVA directive. Further updates will be added to this post.
