Energy Emergency Alert 2
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) is in Energy Emergency Alert 2. Operators will begin dropping large commercial/industrial load resources under contract to be interrupted during an emergency. Local utility companies take measures to secure distribution system load and take possible action to transfer service to non-ERCOT Control Area.
SUMMER EXTREME CONDITIONS: Consumers can help by shutting off unnecessary lights and electrical appliances between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and delaying laundry and other activities requiring electricity-consuming appliances until later in the evening.
