The Henry County Commissioners had an emergency meeting Monday at Henry County REMC because of possible power outages, called “rolling blackouts.”

A “rolling blackout” is a controlled, temporary power outages that power grid operators use to manage the grid when supply and demand fall out of balance. According to Constellation Energy Resources, cutting power in a controlled and brief manner protects sensitive equipment from being overloaded and allows utilities to carefully bring systems back into supply-and-demand harmony.
