U.S. Electric System Passing First Y2K Test, Officials Say The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) - America's electricity system passed its first real-world test Friday night as a third of the power companies' equipment rolled through the Y2K transition without problems, Energy Secretary Bill Richardson said.

But officials were watching three nuclear power plants that unexpectedly shut down in South Carolina, Georgia and Pennsylvania as the new year approached, although none of the shutdowns were found to be Y2K-related.
