A blackout is the loss of the electricity supplied to a certain area.

During the Dominion cold war, Admiral Leyton ordered Red Squad to sabotage the global power grid on Earth, causing the whole planet to suffer a blackout. (DS9: "Homefront", "Paradise Lost")

Throughout the Battle of Cardassia, the Cardassian Rebellion sabotaged Cardassia Prime's communications, transportation and power systems, causing a planet-wide blackout.
