Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) 2
CONSERVATION CRITICAL: Risk of Rotating Outages
ERCOT has issued an EEA level 2. Operating reserves are less than 1,750 MW and are not expected to recover within 30 minutes. ERCOT is reducing demand on the system by interrupting power from large industrial customers who have contractually agreed to have their electricity turned off during an emergency. ERCOT is also using demand response resources that have been procured to address tight operating conditions.
