At least my fridge and modem are working. Anyone else?

Brownout here, about 5 blocks west of you on Independencia.

Oddly, the brownout keeps moving around inside the house like Marley's Ghost. An outlet or fixture will be completely dead, then it'll come on full force, then be half-power or flickering--then change again.

Luckily the ones for internet stayed on and continue to work.

In past our brownouts usually stay in the same pattern until fully fixed.

Well the businesses will be screaming so hopefully they get it fixed soon. I filed a report with them.

I reported via phone app at 7:30. Yes, once the store owners/workers start showing up at 10, there will be more reporting to CFE.

Bob, have you had those momentary blackouts the past few days? Last one was last night around 8pm.

Yes, We have had the momentary blackouts. Seems those are widespread.

CFE provides me three phases, which is normal for a residential housing. (sometimes, one gets only one or two of these phases for a smaller hookup)

When one of my three phases cuts out, a second phase has low voltage and the third works great. My architect insured that larger rooms to include bathrooms and bedrooms are wired with two phases. That way when a single phase fails, I still have electricity on another phase.

If of the two phases I get, one is out the the other is a brownout, at least I have a little light from that brownout phase

Now with one of three phases out, it would be easy to understand why one neighbor experiences a brownout, another reports no electricity and the third has no problems at all. It just depends upon what phase you are using when there are electrical problems in your neighborhood.

I have one of these out in the garage if anyone has an urgent need, for example medical equipment that requires electricity. I will loan it to anyone for short term use. It will take two men to move. Plenty of juice and will run at least 10 hours or more on a tank of gas.
