"We LOVE our statewide outage map in Iowa! Most of our distribution co-ops now automatically report outages to our statewide map, and we’re pushing for all of them to automatically report within the next year or two. On a statewide level, the map really helps us communicate to media and legislators during severe outage events. A nationwide electric co-op outage map would go far in showing how we all work together to power the lives of our members. You can view our live statewide map here: https://www.iowarec.org/outages/ We had a major storm system move through the state today, but with one click, I can see that everything is okay with our co-op infrastructure. This is a very useful tool for us."
