GRDA Statement on SPP return to EEA2 Declaration

Feb 15, 2021

On Monday afternoon, February 15, at 2PM, the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) declared a return to an Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) Level 2.

While it is important to note that an EEA Level 3, which includes the possibility of scheduled interruptions of service, is currently not in effect, nor is it necessarily being predicted by SPP, GRDA remains prepared in case SPP does make an EEA Level 3 declaration again.

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 or directive from SPP.
