I have always wondered what it’s going to be like if there is a power failure in the UK. I woke up this morning to News of power failure in some parts of the UK.
It’s amazing how does part affected was on a stand still for some hours. I could imagine the panic,confusion and embarrassments.
National Grid has said it will “learn the lessons” after nearly one million people across England and Wales lost power on Friday.
The director of operations Duncan Burt told the press that its systems “worked well” after the “incredibly rare event” of two power stations disconnecting.
He said he did not believe that a cyber-attack or unpredictable wind power generation were to blame.
Regulator Ofgem said it could take enforcement action, including a fine, after train passengers were stranded, traffic lights failed to work and thousands of homes were plunged into darkness during the blackout.
The power outage happened at about 17:00 BST on Friday, National Grid said, with blackouts across the Midlands, the South East, South West, North West and north east of England, and Wales.
Industry experts said that a gas-fired power station at Little Barford, Bedfordshire, failed at 16.58, followed two minutes later by the Hornsea offshore wind farm disconnecting from the grid,power was restored by 18:30 BST.
This is the type of news our African/Nigerian leaders will refer us to anytime we cry about steady electricity supply.
You will hear people like Femi Adeshina say even in the UK there are power outage, you people will always complain.
Wailing wailers. 😂
