Power goes down on purpose in White Pigeon Tuesday

WHITE PIGEON, MI (WTVB) - Yesterday’s heat was not a record breaker in Branch County but highs in the lower 90’s definitely made it a bit steamy. But at least there was power for air conditioning which wasn’t the case for people in a village on the west side of neighboring St. Joseph County.  Indiana and Michigan Electric says they were required by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to switch off the power to White Pigeon for a half hour on Monday, and for 7 hours yesterday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. to ease the load on the electrical grid. 1,000 homes and businesses in the border town were purposely blacked out and they say they may have to do it again today if too much energy is being used system-wide.

I & M is asking all of its customers to find some way to conserve so everyone can have electricity today.  They aren’t saying why White Pigeon was singled out.
