Texas power grid could hit new all-time peak demand in coming week | FOX 7 Austin

Published

on

SUMMARY: ERCOT has issued a weather watch due to triple-digit heat in Central Texas, which could result in a new peak demand record. However, experts believe that outages are unlikely at this point. The CEO of ERCOT assures that there is enough capacity to meet the demand and they are closely monitoring the conditions. The risk of outages may increase later in the summer if there is low wind, low solar, and low traditional generation at the same time. Customers are advised to reduce electricity usage during the afternoon and pre-cool their houses in the morning.

ERCOT says the grid could hit a new all-time peak demand record in the coming week, after setting 11 new records last summer. READ MORE: https://www.fox7austin.com/news/texas-power-grid-new-all-time-peak-demand

SUMMARY: Thank you for being here today. I want to express profound gratitude to Mattress Mack for hosting and for his continuous support to the Greater Houston area. Currently, we focus on managing life-threatening issues stemming from Hurricane Barrel, particularly power outages impacting food, water, and extreme heat. Texas is mobilizing resources, including meals and medical supplies, to assist those affected. However, CenterPoint's repeated failures to maintain power during hurricanes are unacceptable. I'm demanding immediate corrective measures from them; otherwise, I will enforce requirements by law. We're setting higher standards to ensure future preparedness and safety for all Texans during hurricane season.

Abbott held his first Beryl conference July 14, after returning from an economic trip to Asia. Hurricane Beryl hit Houston July 8, 2024.

SUMMARY: Federal investigators are examining how 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks managed to shoot at former President Trump despite heavy law enforcement presence. The FBI is treating the case as an attempted assassination and domestic terrorism but has found no clear motive or social media clues. Crooks, from near Pittsburgh, had bomb-making materials in his vehicle and home. Records show conflicting political affiliations, and former acquaintances describe him as a troubled, isolated individual. Positioned on a roof, Crooks confronted a local officer before the attack. Former fire chief Corey Comparator was killed, with two others seriously wounded. Authorities stress resolving political disputes peacefully.

The FBI is talking to the family of Trump rally shooter Thomas Matthew Crooks. At this point, they have not been able to find social media posts or other writing to shed light on his thinking.
