Hundreds of generators are not even running thanks to debris in the intake
paths.  At least in the area as close as our building was.  I shudder to
think of what's happening in the way of Carbon Monoxide gas release and
general overheating issues for those units that do not have smart sensors on

Subject: Reducing power consumption in generator-supplied facilities

What steps are folks taking to maximize run time of emergency
generator equipment and battery in NY facilities currently facing diesel
supply issues? Are second halves of redundant systems being temporarily
taken off line and non-essential loads being shed in a effort to stretch
the time to failure? In a previous life, such precutions were referred to
as "rigging for reduced electrical power" and proved quite effective.
