At 8:30 p.m., utilities were notified that ERCOT was cancelling the conservation appeal.
During the appeal, issued several hours earlier, ERCOT was requesting conservation by consumers across Texas.
ERCOT manages the flow of electric power to about 90% of Texas' electric load, including all of Medina EC's service area. According to their alert posted around 5:30pm: "Alert: Due to a combination of high generation outages typical in April and higher-than-forecasted demand caused by a stalled cold front over Texas, ERCOT may enter emergency conditions this afternoon. Given the event in February, it is important to note that we do not expect customer outages. If it is needed, declaring an emergency would allow us to access resources to balance supply and demand. We will provide updates as possible."
Medina Electric will post updates at MedinaEC.org. Members can also download the ERCOT app to follow current market conditions.
