Power brownouts or blackouts possible Thu May 30 – Fri May 31

A “low probability” exists that Aquidneck Island may experience rolling electric power brownouts or blackouts Thursday May 30 into Friday May 31.

National Grid has been advised by ISO New England that a potential power generation shortage exists because several New England power plants are off line for maintenance. Demand for electricity may exceed supply during the anticipated heat wave expected Thursday and Friday.

You can help by conserving electric power during the heat wave.

Please use extreme caution at highway intersections if traffic signals are inoperative. Treat all such intersections as 4-way stop intersections.
