LUS: Mandatory Rolling Blackouts tonight to alleviate electric grid system

Posted: Feb 16, 2021 7:45 PM

Lafayette, LA (February 16, 2021) – Due to the continued low temperatures and the increased demand for power, the energy regulators for the Acadiana region and Louisiana have requested mandatory rolling blackouts tonight from all the utilities to alleviate the amount of load on the electric grid system.

Customers will experience short term outages for around 30 minutes at a time tonight between the hours of 6:30PM, February 16, and 1:00AM, February 17, or until we receive notification that it is no longer necessary.
