SPP no longer under an Energy Emergency Alert
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Southwest Power Pool is no longer under an Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) as of 9:30 this morning, as stated in a recent Twitter post.
This announcement comes after days under a level of EEA and several controlled power outages.
However, we are not out of the woods yet. With the frigid temperatures, SPP is still experiencing high energy demands. So, they are encouraging consumers to conserve energy through the end of the week, 10 p.m. Friday.
As of 9:30 a.m. CT, Feb. 18, SPP is no longer under an energy emergency alert. Due to continuing high loads & other implications of severe cold weather, it remains in a period of conservative operations until 10 p.m. CT, Feb. 20, for the entire SPP balancing authority area. pic.twitter.com/CmaFnGJts7
