As of 5:00 p.m., this ERCOT conservation alert has been rescinded, and grid conditions show plenty of generating capacity to meet demand.
Thank you for you conservation efforts, which are always a good idea!

In response to possible record electricity demand, ERCOT has issued a call for voluntary conservation efforts across the state.

This means that electric consumers can assist in maintaining reliable electric service by temporarily reducing demand.

Conservation ideas:
Adjust your thermostat to run air conditioners less
Turn off unnecessary lighting and appliances
Temporarily turn off water heaters and pool pumps

This post will be updated when grid conditions improve.
