Xcel Power Outages.
The last thing Xcel Energy needed two weeks before voting begins on its franchise agreement with Denver is a power out that left 6,700 people in Colorado with the lights out.

The grid is a flexible thing, and while immense demand on a hot day may force someone to have a power out; the customers who suffer from it often can be controlled.
