Winter 2022

Resources and Updates


The following key steps have been taken to improve grid reliability:

  • Taking a more conservative operating approach.
    ERCOT is bringing more generation online sooner if it is needed to balance supply and demand.
  • Performing weatherization inspections.
    ERCOT conducted on-site inspections of generating units and transmission station facilities for weatherization compliance.
  • Requiring CEO certifications about weatherization implementation.
    CEOs of market participants must certify their equipment is weatherized and ready to perform.
  • Assessing on-site fuel supplies.
    ERCOT has reviewed the availability of on-site fuel supplies for some generators.
