GRDA Statement on Southwest Power Pool (SPP) return to Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) Level 2 Declaration

Feb 16, 2021

At approximately 11:30AM this morning, the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) declared a return to an Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) Level 2. At this time, we do not have any interruptions of service on the GRDA system and we do not anticipate we will see additional interruptions of service during the day. However, the possibility of additional interruptions will increase later this evening and again tomorrow morning.

GRDA continues to be in contact with representatives of all our customer utility systems, to provide updates on changing conditions. If you have any questions regarding status of the electric system, please contact your local electric provider and be sure you are following them on social media.

The current EEA Level 2 requests that all SPP member utilities continue with public appeals for energy conservation. Some conservation recommendations for customers:

Conservation of energy continues to be a key part of managing the current EEA Level 2 conditions.

Operating conditions may continue to tighten over the next several days because of widespread and extreme cold. GRDA will continue to coordinate with representatives of its customer utility systems on any change in status.
