PUD Plans with Cosmo Specialty Fiber

ABERDEEN, Wash. – The Grays Harbor PUD sat down last week with Cosmo Specialty Fibers in Cosmopolis, to discuss how their system can better cope with failures in the power grid. PUD General Manager Rick Lovely tells us when a Bonneville Power supply failed last month, nearby generators tried to compensate “They would immediately begin to see that as a problem, their generators become sources to feed back to that problem.”
Lovely said the problem there is that co-generation sites like Sierra Pacific and Cosmos are not designed to carry the weight of the entire grid. Lovely said the PUD hopes to also meet with BPA soon to discuss how they could better handle a failure like that in the future.
