California steps up to Stage 2 alert

Power plants totaling 3,964 MW of electricity are also off line Thursday due to mechanical failure or planned maintenance that could not be postponed, the ISO said. It said the fire was reportedly caused when a transmission line that is part of the crucial California-Oregon Intertie sagged into a tree, igniting the fire. Power deliveries into California on the path of the lines have been cut by several hundred MW, the ISO said.

SALEM, Ore., Sept. 13, 2000 – Oregon electric companies must file deregulation plans by Nov. 1 plans with the Oregon Public Utility Commission, identifying what plants will remain under regulated rates to serve residential and small business consumers.
