Extreme cold weather can cause higher-than-anticipated demand, overloading, and stress failure of Bulk Power System equipment, increased reliance on interdependent critical infrastructures, and degradation of energy availability via resource mechanical failure or fuel supply interruption. Similarly, ice storms can directly threaten Bulk Power System equipment. The impacts from these storms, combined with high winds, include infrastructure damage as well as limited personal access and communication capabilities.
