Level 2 alert issued meaning the province is relying on electricity reserves

Alberta’s energy grid is running on reserves again.

At 4:46 p.m. Wednesday, AESO issued a Level 2 alert.

“This is due to unplanned loss in generation. Reserves are balancing the power system. Supply continues to meet demand,” the agency said in a tweet.

It’s the second Level 2 alert issued in one week.
