SUMMARY: Grid Beyond CEO Michael Felin discusses how artificial intelligence can help prevent rolling blackouts in Texas this summer. Grid Beyond is a smart grid company that balances grids by forecasting loads, renewables, and generation to ensure grid stability. By managing batteries, peers, and industrial loads intelligently, the grid can stay balanced even during peak demand. Grid Beyond is working with OT to supply industrial loads and batteries in Texas. The investment in renewables, batteries, and intelligent systems in Texas make the grid stable and safe. Additional investments in cleaner renewable energy can further improve grid stability. Overall, the grid is in better shape for summer than winter, but preparations are ongoing to improve resilience for all seasons. Collaborating with companies like Grid Beyond can help consumers save money and support a more efficient grid.

SUMMARY: Round Rock ISD Board of Trustee Daniel Weston blames the superintendent for recent issues in the school district, stating that “a fish rots from the head.” Despite the district’s efforts to address concerns, Weston and other trustees believe that two members are exacerbating the situation by releasing personal information. There were reservations about hiring Police Chief Dennis Weiner due to past accusations, and an investigation later revealed a negative and chaotic environment within the police department. Weston expressed fears for the safety of students and staff, questioning the ability of officers to protect them amidst internal turmoil. The board was disappointed by the release of sensitive information and emphasized the importance of addressing security concerns.

A letter from Round Rock ISD police chief Dennis Weiner to the district superintendent reveals new details about his sudden departure from the department.
