    Thank you for the info. Load shedding info from Florida. We have Ice Plants that are helping schools and buildings stay cool at 12:00 noon when the chiller plant shuts down. These plants are run by EMS systems. At 9:00 PM at night the chiller plant would start up and make ice. 12:00 noon we called it burn mode and this would help FPL with loads to residential. We had 20 Ice plants.
