Did you know that the Southeast is the region that experiences the most weather-related major power outages? In the period from 2000 to 2021, the Southeast experienced 474 major power outages. Many of them were due to hurricanes or other severe weather, although winter weather also contributed to some outages. Texas was the state with the most power outages. Since the period of this study did not include the cold outbreak of February 2022 that affected power supplies in Texas and the Southern Plains, including that outbreak would make the statistics even more stark.
