Know Your Outage Block

Rotating outages or rolling blackouts are a safety valve that MID could use in an emergency to relieve pressure on the electrical system. It is a controlled way to cut electric use quickly and prevent serious damage to utility equipment. MID cannot predict when or if an emergency situation will occur, or how long it will last.

Note: Your outage block is noted on the first page of your MID bill.  See the example below.
