This evening into tomorrow, Texas is expecting truly unprecedented winter weather that will put extreme stress on the electric grid. Help the grid by reducing your electric demand this evening from 4PM-midnight.
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) is our grid operator. As you can see from the chart, electricity demand is forecasted to exceed supply this afternoon into this evening. If this occurs, we can expect rolling blackouts. Power lines are also additionally susceptible to ice loading and downed trees.
