In the past hour, MPE received notification from its power supplier that regional wind turbines iced up and are unable to generate electricity. This has created the potential for an interruption of electric service for MPE and its consumers (depending on the duration and consumers' usage patterns).
To attempt to minimize the risk of a power outage, MPE is requesting you to take action. If you are able to conserve energy immediately - by washing clothes and dishes later, turning down thermostats a couple of degrees, using a microwave oven instead of an electric range, turning off space heaters, etc. - please do so. Your swift response may help us all avoid the loss of power.
We apologize for the inconvenience and will update you as soon as more information becomes available.
