He was very angry, and his words left no doubt that he saw evidence that absolutely lead him to the conclusion that Entergy is fricking this thing up big time.
Right, becasue local politicians never grandstand to get their name in the paper.
On the other hand, if investigation into the facts reveals that John Young is CORRECT, then, he will politically benefit, as he should.
I highly doubt there will ever be any investigation other than the reviews that already happen after a major outage. The power industry is a massive, I repeat, MASSIVE copycat industry. Reps from major power providers all of the country, sometimes even the world, regularly meet along with regulatory agencies to review and establish procedures for major outages, how to respond to emergencies, etc. Chances are, Entergy does it the same way other companies in Florida, North Carolina, or anywhere else do it. They don't just close their eyes, point at the map, and say, "I think we'll start here." There is an established procedure for restoring an outage. IE: this goes on first, then this, then this, and so on.
Think of the grid as the interstates and roads in Baton Rouge (All BRTIOOC jokes aside, please). If you are resoring traffic flow, first thing you'd do is fix the bridges across the river. Next, you'd probably prioritize to the exits for major roads like Airline, Siegen. Next, youd try to fix lights at major intersections, to allow traffic to flow to the smaller street. The stop sign on Alvin Dark thats missing, while necessary, is not exactly the most important issue in the grand scheme.
You people need to accept that you are talking about something you don't understand, and it is not something that the CSR is going to be able to explain to you.
