One of Iowa’s largest electricity providers is warning people about the use of gas-powered generators on New Year’s Eve. Alliant Energy spokesman David Giroux (jer-OH) says generator sales have gone through the roof recently but people don’t always follow the instructions. When the generators have been used elsewhere during power outages, Giroux says there were many reports of carbon monoxide poisonings, burns, fires and electrocutions. He is concerned people will start using their generators on New Year’s Eve when they really don’t have to.
