Solar Flare Information

Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative (SSVEC) researched current information regarding the potential for solar flares to cause failure of our distribution system. The good news is that the likelihood for failure of components of SSVEC’s system is very remote. The bad news is that there is concern for the stability of higher voltage transmission systems, especially those located in more northern latitudes.
