Most recently, the Polar Vortex is threatening rolling blackouts as well due to the heightened demand from utility companies. Rolling blackouts go beyond sitting in the dark at home waiting for the power to come back on.
As long as the power grid remains in its current state, we must open our eyes to the reality that rolling blackouts will continue to be a regular part of dealing with disasters.
Follow energy conservation measures to keep the use of electricity as low as possible, which can help power companies avoid imposing rolling blackouts.


Further, take steps to prepare your home and yourself for different events that may cause rolling blackouts. Freeze soda bottles filled with water and when the rolling blackouts occur, place the frozen soda bottles in the refrigerator to maintain the optimum temperature.
Also, to keep items as cool as possible during rolling black, limit the amount of times the refrigerator or freezer door is opened.
What would have been a manageable local blackout cascaded into widespread distress on the electric grid.


This is a last resort measure of utility companies to avoid an even worse situation — a total power blackout.
