The AP has released an “exclusive” story concerning the nationwide “experiment” that will be conducted on the US power grid. The experiment will relieve the power providers from the duty of regulating the frequency of power on the line.

I'm not sure on the technicalities of this but I don't think it's a good thing

Officials say they want to try this to make the power supply more reliable, save money and reduce what may be needless efforts.

"A lot of people are going to have things break and they're not going to know why," said Demetrios Matsakis, head of the time service department at the U.S. Naval Observatory, one of two official timekeeping agencies in the federal government.


In other words, it is going to save them money and cost us money.

I was at a power plant today. 60hz will still be the standard that power plants use on the grid.

Biere.

It's not that they are going to quit using the 60 Hz standard. It is that they are going to quit monitoring it as closely as they have been which will lead to fluctuations. It is the fluctuations that will cause all the issues.
