We use several policies to manage the Security of Supply process.
The Emergency Management Policy (EMP) sets out the steps that we will take, as a reasonable and prudent operator, during an extended emergency.
We have prepared and published a Rolling Outage Plan and provided links to all approved participant plans.

To assist in managing security of supply the system operator identifies asset owner outages that negatively impact security of supply when hydro storage crosses the 1% Electricity Percentage Risk Curve. These are the outages the system operator may request asset owners to reschedule when hydro storage crosses the 4% Electricity Percentage Risk Curve. Identifying (and subsequentially rescheduling) these outages is intended to assist in conserving hydro resources. The system operator is seeking to avoid (to the extent reasonably possible) the need for an Official Conservations Campaign and act as a reasonable and prudent system operator when managing security during Security of Supply situations.
Asset owner outages that may negatively impact security of supply are shown in the link below
