Rolling Blackouts May Not be Needed Today

David McNew, Newsmaker

A second day of controlled blackouts may not be necessary, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas said early Thursday because “immediate concerns for the possibility of rotating outages this morning are reduced.”

ERCOT said it will continue to monitor the state’s electric grid for lost power generation. The grid still has about 3,000 megawatts of generation out of service because of the extreme cold.

Even though the statewide power emergency was called off yesterday, state officials are urging everyone to run their business and household heating systems as low as they can to conserve power and keep their homes comfortable.
