Electric power for US consumers was interrupted an average of 7.8 hours (470 minutes) in 2017, nearly double the average in 2016, according to the US Energy Information Administration. The reason? More hurricanes and winter storms occurred in 2017, and their impact lasted longer. Excluding major events, the average duration of interruptions customers experienced was almost identical in 2016 and 2017, at about 2 hours in both years.
