Posted on January 23, 2015

According to power management company Eaton, in 2013 California (for the fifth year running) topped the list of states with the most power outages, followed by Texas and Michigan.

Eaton’s Blackout Tracker data is based on a full year of reported power outages across the U.S. and is organized into two sections: an overview of national power outage data and power outage data by state.
