With our scorching temperature ERCOT continues to ask everyone to conserve electricity through next week.
The extreme heat is putting too much pressure on the Texas power grid. ERCOT says they have set new all-time peak demand three times this week. They are advising everyone to conserve energy during peak hours between 3 and 7pm. If we don't cut back on energy ERCOT says rolling outages could start next week. If rolling outages are implemented they could last up to 45 minutes.
