The City has received word from [Electric Reliability Council Of Texas] and Oncor that rolling blackouts are no longer necessary.
“We are very appreciative of the sacrifices of those who were without power during the rotating outages, and we also appreciate the conservation efforts by consumers during this emergency situation, as well as the load resources in our demand response programs,” said ERCOT CEO Trip Doggett in a press release.
Doggett added: “With continued cold temperatures and snow predicted across the state, we ask that everyone continue to conserve their electricity usage until temperatures moderate. “
If you are having power issues, please phone Oncor at 888-313-4747.
