Six Texas Power Plants Go Offline Due to Excessive Power Consumption

Must Read

Electric Reliability Council of Texas reported that 6 power plants went offline Friday the 13th resulting in the loss of about 2,900 megawatts of electricity.

“With unseasonably hot weather driving record demand across Texas, ERCOT continues to work closely with the power industry to make sure Texans have the power they need,” ERCOT said in a news release on May 13.

ERCOT is asking Texans to set their thermostats to 78 degrees or above and avoid the usage of large appliances such as dishwashers, washers and dryers during peak hours between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. through the weekend.

With Texas power grids struggling just to keep up with power demand due to excessive heat and calls for energy from A/C systems does one think the grid could handle the extra strain of Electric cars?
