The Electric Reliability Council of Texas is requesting that Texans reduce electric use as much as possible through Friday, June 18.
Per ERCOT, a significant number of forced generation outages combined with potential record electric use for the month of June has resulted in tight grid conditions.

"We will be conducting a thorough analysis with generation owners to determine why so many units are out of service," said ERCOT Vice President of Grid Planning and Operations Woody Rickerson. "This is unusual for this early in the summer season."

ERCOT is recommending that Texans follow the Energy Conservation Tips below to conserve energy:
• Turn off any unnecessary lights and equipment
• Turn thermostat up 2 to 3 degrees
• Set programmable thermostats to higher temperatures when no one is home
• Use fans to feel 4 to 6 degrees cooler
• Limit use of large appliances (i.e., dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc.)
• Use a microwave or slow cooker rather than an electric stove
• Close blinds and drapes during late afternoon
• Schedule pool pumps to run in the early morning or overnight hours
