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: Smoke from wildfires in the Texas Panhandle is causing concern as firefighters battle the largest wildfire on record in the state. Over 1 million acres have burned, with hundreds of homes destroyed and residents left with nothing but ash. The fires are expected to worsen with high winds and low humidity. Houston area firefighters are aiding in efforts to contain the blazes, but the use of airplanes and helicopters to drop water may be limited due to high wind speeds. Residents are devastated as they sift through the ashes in search of keepsakes from their destroyed homes. Governor Abbott has visited the area, but the situation remains dire.
