Please note that Southwest Power Pool ( SPP ) has again extended the current Conservative Operations Advisory effective for its entire 14 - state balancing authority ( BA ) area through Thursday , July 21 , at 10 p . m . Central time ( CT ) . The advisory was previously scheduled to end tonight , Wednesday , July 20 , at 10 p . m . but because of continued high loads and risks regarding the availability of generation resources , SPP has extended it for an additional 24 hours .
Concurrent to the Conservative Operations Advisory , because of pervasive high temperatures , high region - wide electricity use , and uncertainty in its wind forecast , SPP also issued a Resource Advisory effective July 17 at 12:00 noon through Thursday , July 21 , at 10 p . m . Both the Resource Advisory and the extended Conservative Operations Advisory are now expected to end on July 21 at 10 p . m .
Neither Resource Advisories nor Conservative Operations Advisories require the public to conserve energy . SPP has provided instructions on applicable procedures to generation and transmission operators and will send additional information if necessary or as conditions change .
SPP issues Conservative Operations Advisories to signal to utilities that own and operate transmission and generation facilities that there is a need to operate the bulk power system more conservatively to mitigate risks associated with weather , environmental , operational , terrorist , cyber or other events . SPP issues Resource Advisories when extreme weather , significant outages , and/or wind - and load - forecast uncertainty are expected in its service territory . While under a Resource Advisory , to mitigate risk associated with the factors described above SPP may commit generation in its day - ahead market earlier than under standard operating procedures and commit generating resources in Reliability status .
