Report: Regions of U.S. Face Elevated Risk of Electricity Disruptions

Portions of the U.S. are at elevated or high risk for potential electricity emergencies this summer, according to a new reliability assessment from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). Fortunately, Ohio and the rest of PJM territory are at “low risk” of disruptions, the report found. NERC says electricity shortages are most likely in the western U.S., Texas, New England, and parts of the Midwest. 7/6/2021
