##### Reference no: EM131069834

The largest blackout in US history occurred on August 14, 2003. It affected eight US states and parts of eastern Canada. Millions of people were without power, some for multiple days. After a long investigation, the cause was determined and actions were set forth.

Read the report by the NERC titled "Technical Analysis of the August 14, 2003, Blackout: What Happened, Why, and What Did We Learn?" Write a 500 - 550 word essay on the blackout, what caused the blackout, and any governmental regulations that were a result of the blackout and report. Reference at least one source in addition to the report, and format according to APA standards, 6th edition, including title and reference pages.
