Power Warning - Conservation Critical: Risk of Rotating Outages


ERCOT is in a Power Warning (Energy Emergency Alert 2 or 3 with no rotating outages). Operators will begin dropping large commercial/industrial load resources and other consumers that are under contract to be interrupted during an emergency. Local utility companies take steps to secure distribution system load and may begin serving some customers with power from other grids.
