Planned electricity outages

Is it possible to get access to the schedule of planned electricity outages?

Sometimes work on the power grid requires scheduled outages in small areas. Can these outages be distributed in advance in an open manner that is computer-accessible?

In particular, it would be helpful if a 'feed' was provided that specified the following individual items:

  • ResponsibleEntity - the company or contractor responsible for the outage
  • ResponsibleEntityEmailAddress.
  • ResponsibleEntityPhoneNumber.

  • StartDateTime - the date and time the outage starts.

  • EndDateTime - the date and time the outage finishes.

  • Location - a computer-accessible rendition of the affected area. Co-ordinates and radius would work from my perspective, but 'district' might be better from other users' point of view. I really don't want this to be a Big Block Of Text (e.g. 'from halfway up Road A until it meets Road B') that a computer has no easy way of parsing though.

  • Town - the nearest town or city.
