Gov. McMaster Wants Review of South Carolina Power Grids
Following the weather disaster in Texas last week, Governor McMcaster is ordering a review of the South Carolina electrical grid.
He’s demanding the office of regulatory staff review the power grids to see if we have the potential to face similar problems. The Governor then wants the watchdog group to report back to his office and lawyers directly. While the state is familiar with hurricanes, it hasn’t faced extreme cold weather. However, experts say a Texas-like disruption is unlikely here because the state is connected to power providers all along the east coast, unlike the Lone Star state which is isolated from the rest of the nation’s power grid.
