    With freeze coming, ERCOT expects sufficient generation to meet forecasted demand

    January 31, 2023 - The Dallas Morning News


      With North Texas in a winter storm warning until Wednesday, residents have had to deal with a number of byproducts to the weather, including flight cancellations and school closures.

      Another thing residents need to keep in mind, particularly in the wake of state-wide power outages in February 2021, is the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, which manages most of the state’s electricity grid.

      “ERCOT is monitoring weather conditions and expects sufficient generation to meet forecasted demand,” ERCOT tweeted on Monday afternoon.

      Since those 2021 outages, ERCOT, which operates separately from other states. has been under intense pressure to improve grid reliability, as population booms and renewables change the energy game. ERCOT, with headquarters in Taylor, is overseen by the Public Utility Commission.

      If you experience a local power outage, you can report it to ERCOT at the following link.

      The Dallas Morning News has an ERCOT hub where you can monitor the Texas electricity supply and demand, current grid conditions and real-time prices in terms of dollars per megawatt hours.
