Yesterday the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) announced that electricity demand had set a new July record. Today the electric grid operator for most of the state is recommending conservation.
The Texas power grid barely has enough electricity to meet demand this summer, and an unexpected drop in generation or spike in demand could lead to rolling blackouts, the president of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas testified Tuesday.
ERCOT has released a free app that provides updates on the status of the state’s electric grid and tips on how to conserve power when conservation efforts are needed most.
Winter is just beginning, but the state is already warning about a big problem Texans potentially face next summer: rolling blackouts.
Rolling power outages may begin in Texas homes as the state’s electrical grid is again being pushed to the brink by triple-degree heat.
The manager of the Texas electrical grid is appealing for users to cut back on their electricity usage for the rest of the afternoon.
Two Senate committees will hold joint hearings into why power plants shut down unexpectedly earlier this month.
Many people will be struggling to stay warm on Thursday. This means that rolling power outages could potentially return.
With more winter weather and freezing temperatures in the forecast this week, the organization representing 75 hospitals in North Texas wants some answers about last weeks rolling blackouts.
State officials are still investigating, but it looks like a chain reaction involving coal and natural gas plants is to blame.
