The bulk electric transmission system in the United States and Canada has
been restored and is operating reliably. Many of the generating units that
tripped off line during the outage have returned to service and additional
generating units are expected to return to service over the weekend.
Virtually all customers have been returned to electric service,
although some customers will continue to experience rotating outages due
to generating capacity availability. Some rotating outages may also be
necessary on Monday depending on the status of the generating units
returning to service and the electrical demand.
