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.
