WHITEWATER VALLEY REMC WARNS OF POTENTIAL ROLLING BLACKOUTS

(Liberty, IN)--Whitewater Valley REMC on Tuesday issued a statement about the possibility of rolling blackouts.  They say the issue has to do with the transition to renewable energy sources that can be affected by extreme heat or cold.  If the situation becomes critical, residents would first be asked to cut back on demand.  If that doesn’t work, Whitewater Valley REMC said that they may be instructed to begin rolling blackouts that could last anywhere from half an hour to four hours.  They say that they themselves may have little notice about the need for the rolling blackouts.
