Gov. James Douglas on Thursday urged Vermonters to save power to help avert rolling blackouts that could be needed because of electricity shortages in southern New England.
Douglas said the power shortage was caused by a shortage of natural gas used to power electric generating plants in southern New England.
Steve Costello, a spokesman for the Central Vermont Public Service Corp., said a number of plants that produce a total of 4,000 megawatts of electricity had been shut down because they were out of fuel.
