Rolling Blackouts in Moorhead Stopped

UPDATE: Moorhead Public Service informs WDAY News First the rolling blackouts have been stopped.


(Moorhead, MN) -- Moorhead Public Service will be experiencing rolling blackouts approximately every 30 minutes that will affect areas in Moorhead.  The rolling blackouts will start about 10:00 AM today and go until further notice.

Southwest Power Pool (SPP) has ordered rolling blackouts through an energy emergency and is taking steps to prevent circumstances from getting worse, which could result in uncontrolled outages of even greater magnitude. This is primarily because of the loss of generation throughout the nation due to the extreme winter storms. 

Moorhead Public Service will provide more updates as information is available.  Please minimize the use of electricity where possible.
