According to the Department of Energy, a yellow alert is generated when the reserve power of a network – the difference between supply and demand – is below the required level. However, the alert will not cause power outages.

Meanwhile, a red alert is generated in the grids when there are no operating reserves, which could lead consumers to suffer power outages. (editor: Mike U. Frialde)
