Update: January 18th, 2018 – 11:20 a.m.
The voluntary load reduction request has been lifted. We appreciate all of our members that conserved electricity during this rare circumstance.

 

Navasota, TX – January 17th, 2018 – 9:30 p.m.

Midcontinent Independent System Operator, Inc. (MISO), has requested that Mid-South Synergy members voluntarily reduce their electricity consumption between 5:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., January 18th, 2018. Unusual and sustained low temperatures have caused consumer demand for electricity to potentially exceed generation capacity. If demand exceeds generation capacity, periodic outages will be necessary. MISO is working to bring in additional generation capacity.
