Generation Outages

Generation Outages is a graphical representation of planned and forced generation outages within the ERCOT system.

Last Updated:

This dashboard provides MW values of planned and forced generation outages, including energy storage resources, currently taking place as well as any that occurred during the previous 6 days. These quantities include full outages, as well as partial reductions in generation capability that meet reporting requirements. The values in the dashboard reflect MW capability reductions relative to a generator’s maximum seasonal capability.

Note: All data displayed on the Generation Outages dashboard has been submitted to ERCOT by Market Participants. Outage information can also be entered after an outage has occurred. A planned outage that requires an extension will then be classified as a forced outage.
