Separate to the above unplanned outages, ACT and NSW electricity networks were being closely monitored between Thursday, 10 February 2017 and Sunday, 12 February 2017 on advice of the Australian Energy Market Operator that there was a lack of forecast reserve generation capacity in the NSW market on those days. Due to the actions of households and businesses across ACT and NSW to reduce their non-essential energy use over those days the power system was kept within stable operating ranges. No ACT electricity customers lost electricity supply as a result of either these voluntary measures or broader power system issues on those days.
