The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, known as ERCOT, manages about 90% of the state’s electric load, according to the organization. As millions of Texans are still without power, Texas lawmakers and the governor are demanding answers after ERCOT activated the state’s Energy Emergency Alerts. The first alert happened at 12:17 a.m. Monday. A level two alert went out 55 minutes later, asking people to conserve energy or they’d face “rotating outages.” Just 13 minutes later, at 1:25 a.m., ERCOT activated its third-level EEA, and Texans started to lose power in what was supposed to be rotating power losses." https://www.kxan.com/investigations/5-ercot-board-members-dont-live-in-texas-one-from-canada/ 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
