HOUSTON – ERCOT is once again asking Texans to conserve electricity this week as hot weather continues driving record power demands across the state.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) issued the conservation appeal for Wednesday, July 13 between 2 – 8 p.m. Currently, according to the company, no system-wide outages are expected.

ERCOT said that Wednesday’s temperatures are expected to be similar to Monday’s temperatures, which reached the triple digits.

According to the Public Utility Commission (PUC), ways to reduce electricity use during peak times include turning up your thermostat a degree or two, if comfortable, and postponing running major appliances or pool pumps during the requested timeframe.

ERCOT said it will continue to use all tools available to manage the grid effectively and reliably, including using reserve power and calling upon large electric customers who have volunteered to lower their energy use.

Factors driving the need for this important action by customers:
