Eaton Corporation has tracked power outage information since February 16, 2008 in an effort to educate visitors on the causes and impact of power outages. Users are able to explore power outage causes and impacts for your state or region although the company says it “cannot guarantee that every power outage is included.” According to the company, “a power outage is just one of nine common power problems that impact power quality and availability. In many cases, they occur within a building or facility and are not reported publicly. As a result, power-related problems occur far more frequently than what is shown in the Blackout Tracker.”
Also available in downloadable pdf format is the 2011 Blackout Tracker report.
