Winter Readiness

In Newfoundland and Labrador, winter is the time of year when demand for power is at its highest. As the primary generator of power in our province, we have worked hard to be prepared and to ensure reliable delivery of electricity to your homes and businesses.

While we can’t control the weather, we can prepare for it. On these pages, learn how Hydro prepares for the winter months and also how you can be prepared and stay safe during outages. Learn more about how the system works and how to receive timely information about our electricity supply.

How We Meet Our Energy Demand

Each day, NL Hydro only produces the amount of electricity needed by our customers. Visit our System Information Center to view our Current Island System Generation, learn more about how we balance our supply and demand, and to review our daily Hydro System Supply and Demand Status Reports.
