Today Date








Normal situation

There is enough electricity to cover consumption – no need to worry!

Risk of shortage

The amount of electricity generated may not be enough to meet our needs. Let’s all make an effort to reduce our consumption mainly at peak times (in principle between 5.00 pm and 8.00 pm) and prevent an outage!

Risk of outage

There is not enough electricity to meet our needs at all time. The authorities have decided to take prohibitive measures to cut consumption further.

Outage planned

If not possible otherwise, some consumers will temporarily have their power cut to prevent a widespread, uncontrolled, long-term blackout.
