Weather-Related Power Outages and Electric System Resiliency
Richard J. Campbell (au)
High winds, especially when combined with precipitation from seasonal storms, can cause damage to electricity utility systems, resulting in service interruptions to large numbers of electricity customers. While most such power outages are caused by damage from trees and tree limbs falling on local electricity distribution lines and poles, major power outages tend to be caused by damage to electricity transmission lines which carry bulk power long distances. Depending on the severity of the storm and resulting impairment, power outages can last a few hours or extend to periods of several days, and have real economic effects. Contents of this report: Introduction; Anatomy of Weather-Related Power Outages; Economic Costs Associated with Storm-Related Power Outages; Reducing Storm-Related Outages; Concluding Observations; Options for Congress. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
