EAST VALLEY - Over the weekend, there were several reports of resident experiencing power outages in the East Valley and North Central areas of Los Angeles.
On Friday, North Hills and Sun Valley both experienced outages - North Hills for eight hours and Sun Valley for four, due to failed transformer stations. In Van Nuys, residents lost power for more than four hours on Saturday when an area circuit when out.

The London Telegraph reported yesterday on the classified findings of a new security assessment by the British government simulating a storm-induced power blackout of two weeks’ duration in southwestern England. Whatever progress had been made in providing for Britain’s energy future has ground to a halt.
Britain’s National Grid agreed this week to pay three of the country’s utilities to keep three power plants running this winter as it tries to avoid brownouts.
The secret British report, coupled with abundant evidence of our own perilous condition, represents a rare opportunity for transpartisan cooperation between the Obama administration and the new Congress to secure the grid. A large portion of Floyd County, as well as some areas of Clark and Harrison counties, now find themselves without electricity just before the holidays.
Jonas Bloomfield has always put a lot of efforts in decorating in house for Christmas, as this picture from 2013 shows. Duke Energy which is responsible for most of the electrical system of the area, announced that it would modernize many of its installations in the county next summer to avoid that such an incident occurs again.


LADWP worked to restore the loss and are conducting further investigation to determine the cause. The sad fact remains that, as coal-fired power stations continue to be phased out, little is coming forward to replace them. There will be hell to pay for both if they leave us as unprepared as the United Kingdom to contend with this present – and growing – danger.
One minute the family is enjoying their favorite TV show, and the next everyone is sitting in the dark and wondering what to do now that the tech toys are nothing more than paper weights.
The 1,25 million lights and decorations that he installed around his house and on his lawn caused an extensive power outage, affecting more than 25 000 homes.
Bloomfield was clearly remorseful and sad as he walked in the dark, in the empty dowtown area of New Albany.
The power companies estimate that it could take between 48 an 72 hours before they can put the system back up, meaning they will spend Christmas in the dark . This year, he had decided to add 940 000 new stringing lights, but  unfortunately the electrical system could not take it. Bloomfield admits that he may have been excessive in his decorating outburst and promises to restrain himself in the future. While that’s still one of the top outage origins, the number of equipment failures over time has been on the decline as the utility works to replace outdated machinery, Abueg said.

Three years ago, the cushion between supply and electricity demand was as high as 15 percent, according to David Hunter, an analyst at energy consultancy Schneider Electric. This is surely a major annoyance, but in some parts of the continent, it is much more than that. There were 14 equipment failures in 2009, with incidents dropping nearly every year, with just three in 2013, he said.Squirrels were the third most frequent cause of outages, discounting those categorized as unknown. The bottom line: Any one of these man-induced or naturally occurring disruptions could precipitate disasters that would be nation-ending.
In locations with frequent severe weather, power outages are much more common occurrences and can last for much longer periods of time.
The rodents are often found fried after chewing on aluminum wiring, which short circuits equipment.Next up was wind, which was the culprit in 22 outages. What lasts half an hour at your house can last for hours, or even days, in remote locations or in instances of major storms.
Repair work following those heavy winds, which also downed trees that then crushed power lines, cost Glendale Water & Power about $500,000.Constant trimming of trees costs the city about $750,000 annually, but trees and palm fronds can still be a nuisance to the electricity provider. A project found on Kickstarter is just the ticket to make power outages that much more bearable, even if they seem to last and last.
