A power watch put in place by Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro this morning has been lifted, but officials will continue to monitor demand through the evening.
Customer peak demand on the system reached a record level this morning at 1714 MW on the island and 931 MW on the Avalon due to extreme cold temperatures.
Hydro says there was enough generation reserves available to ensure there were no power outages.
The Power Watch put in place this morning was lifted around 11:30, and Hydro will continue to monitor the system throughout the day and into the evening.
