Commentary: On average, U.S. electricity customers experienced about 5 ½ hours of electricity interruptions in 2022, almost two hours less than in 2021, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The annual decline was driven by fewer major events in 2022 compared with 2021. Major events that cause power interruptions include weather, interference from vegetation near power lines and utility practices. Notable major events that affected electricity customers in 2022 included hurricanes Ian and Nicole in Florida and Winter Storm Elliot in Texas, Florida, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin and New York. Customers in Florida, West Virginia, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire experienced the most interrupted power in 2022.
