Kansas City Rolling Blackouts Persist

This morning we share more deets about this week's power play and a glimpse at the new normal in Kansas City.

Moreover, the debate over energy production is important for the metro and a welcomed distraction from the INEVITABLE rate hike that's coming either way.

Check the links as power companies have been giving compliant newseis the runaround with a back and forth on announcements all week . . .

Evergy rep addresses questions, frustrations after KC's continued rolling outages

Evergy 'on standby' to resume controlled outages

'Strong possibility' for more rolling power outages Wednesday morning; Evergy on standby

Evergy's controlled outage leaves some households without power for 7 hours

'We were freezing': During frigid morning in Kansas City, some go without power for hours

Evergy crews working in dangerous freezing weather to help keep power on for customers

What is “the grid” and why is it strained right now?

Power outages cause panic for people with disabilities

Timeline: How did we get to point of needing outages?

More rolling power outages possible Wednesday, estimated to end by Friday

KCMO would be shut down if they turned off the power to the trolley.

FULL DISCLOSURE LACKING FROM EVERGY.
Politics and optics again control (OMIT) why we in the Kansas City metro are apart of this circus. The Southwest Power Pool formed in 2018 now controls our fate whether that is good or bad. We have adequate resources locally, but are committed to share our resources with ill-fated communities sometimes states away whether there shortfalls are of there own doing (political, business incompetence) or natural disasters or both. THE SPECIFICS NEEDS TO BE FULLY EXPLAINED, DAMN THE POLITICS OR OPTICS!

7:16 While we agree, the idea that the Dems will ever tell the truth about their corruption is stupid they never will.

Maybe John Durham is indicting conspirators right now.

Everything is rigged against the middle class.

Yes, @8:26AM was busted yesterday for lying. He can't make a point without resorting to lies. They busted him up over it yesterday. He needs to go away. Nothing worse than a know liar continuing to lie about everything. He has no credibility on this blog anymore.

If only Dear Leader could play more golf on the taxpayer dime. Then, and only then, would the US electrical grid issues be completely solved. Unfortunately, Texas Republican MAGATS didn’t do a thing to improve their infrastructure. Serves them right. You vote for MAGATS, you suffer the consequences. Tough titties, Texas!

Americans got a Trump border wall instead of an upgraded electrical grid. Does repeatedly shouting MAGA keep the family house warm?

D卐M☭CRATs LIE said...

Congress got a border fence and failed impeachment instead of handling covid.

D卐M☭CRATs LIE said...

Adding more government will fix it!


WASHINGTON — Federal regulators say they are launching an “inquiry” into the operations of the bulk-power system during the severe winter storm that left millions without power in subfreezing temperatures in Texas and other states.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation announced the inquiry Tuesday.

Officials said the immediate emphasis will remain on restoring power to customers and securing the reliability of the bulk-power system, but they will work with other federal agencies, states, regional entities and utilities to identify problems with the performance of the bulk-power system and identify solutions. FERC oversees interstate electricity transmission while NERC oversees reliability standards for the continental U.S., Canada parts of Mexico.

Stupid Democrat Party forcing windmills and solar panels on Americans is causing power outages and Americans freezing to death.

Thanks Democrat Party !

You idiots !!

^^and yet it was the iced up coal and natural gas plants with frozen instruments. Who knew that Texas gets 88% of it's power from non-renewables. Oh that's right..everyone!!! Weird

This is the result of altering basic economic calculations by heavily subsidizing unreliable power generation technology like wind and solar. When it inevitably fails there is not enough baseline capacity left in the system to keep it from collapsing.

^^and yet gas and coal failed this time. Texas didn't install de-icers on their turbines like the rest of the world did. Weird.

Texas, Missouri, Kansas the United States never had a nationwide power failure until now as a result of the Democrat Party's idiotic green policy of windmills and solar panels manufactured in Communist China.

The pollution of the Chines plants manufacturing the windmills and solar panels are ten times more toxic than natural gas.

The rolling blackouts actually increased demand as everyone with a brain turned their thermostat up immediately.

@1:22Pm and yet the green deal isn't law, hasn't been implemented and is not in use. You're either ignorant or willfully stupid. Either way, go to Parlor. They tolerate lying scumbags like you. You're too dumb to post here. Bye bye CHUD.

Thank you Emanual Cleaver, Nazi Peloskank, idiot in chief Biden, BHO-zo. You all created this with your 8 years of terror on America. Now we get to reap the benefit of your FAILED liberal policies. Nazi wouldnt even talk infastructure with President Trump. She knew this would bite her.

Your statement just shows your ignorance on this subject.

Of the whole of spcc or whatever group that is 31% is their power comes from wind, the majority of power generation in their group. From what their spokesbabe said the other morning, they were only getting 8% from their wind. So yes the blame falls squarely on their blind posturing for s'posed green power. Why the fvck we're supporting their initiatives i don't know. They are a net user, we are and have been net producers

Yep @1:22, that's the dirty little secret they want to keep hush hush about. Their panels can only be manufactured from rare materials that literally require a gigantic gash across the face of the earth that they can rape. But hey, it produces the progressive wet dream of solar panels so any thing else is just collateral damage
