Power Interruptions Possible Due to Cold Weather

Monday February 15, 2021

UPDATE TO TODAY'S EVENT:  NPPD is a member of the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), which is a regional transmission organization that ensures reliable supplies of electricity across its 14-state footprint.

SPP's service area unexpectedly lost some generating units earlier today, which caused them to declare an energy emergency.  SPP directed power utilities in 14 states to share in an effort to shed load (interrupt service to customers) due to lack of electricity to meet demand because of the cold temperatures.
