MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - On Tuesday, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) discussed a full review of the rolling blackouts that took place during extremely cold temperatures back in December.

TVA says they experienced an unprecedented demand during that time but attributed many of the issues to the challenges that the generator fleets faced.

The purpose of the rolling blackouts was to reduce the demand since there was no way of getting any additional supply, but TVA says they are confident that they have fixed many of those issues.

Neighboring markets around the country were also constrained, but TVA is looking to make long-term solutions to prevent the crisis from occurring again in Tennessee.
