Rolling Blackouts and Planning for Your Business’s Future
Rolling blackouts can be a great inconvenience to your business. Depending on the length of the power outage, it could potentially spoil your inventory, stall production, and can even affect your employee’s wages. Understanding when rolling blackouts are common and the impact they have on your operations is crucial in planning ahead for your business.
A rolling blackout is a strategic, temporary power outage that balances out the supply demand of electricity in a market. They are implemented by utility companies as a last resort to prevent a complete blackout, and often happen during incredibly hot summers and frigid winters when air conditioners and heaters are in high use.
With the Atlantic Hurricane Season and summer quickly approaching, it’s a great time to prepare for potential outages. To avoid being without power during any season we highly recommend adding Cotton Logistics emergency power services to your business continuity plan.
