6/15/2021 - ERCOT Conservation Alert

ERCOT Conservation Alert 

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas is asking residents across the state to conserve power through Friday 6/18.

The council says the power grid will likely be tighter due to a high number of forced generation outages.

Steps to conserve energy

ERCOT is asking people to do the following to help reduce demand:

  • Set thermostats to 78° or higher
  • Turn off lights and pool pumps
  • Avoid using large appliances (washers, dryers, ovens)
  • “If you don’t need something – we are asking you to turn it off and unplug it if possible,” ERCOT said.
