Energy Conservation Watch Continues

Snow, ice and below-freezing temperatures remain in Texas, leading the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to maintain a statewide watch issued to utilities through tomorrow morning. ERCOT is anticipating record demand but expects to have enough generation capacity to meet it. However, the watch notifies utilities that they may have to “shed load,” which could create rolling outages like the ones that occurred on Feb. 4.

ERCOT also advises energy conservation from 4 to 8 p.m. tonight and 6 to 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, stating it is need to reduce the risk of emergency action. Customers can limit energy use by:

Avoiding tasks with high energy use: washing and drying clothes, automated dish washing, etc.

Setting thermostat at 68 degrees while at home, and slightly lower when away.

Turning off lights and appliances when not in use.

Unplugging appliances, electronics and chargers that are not in use, such as coffee pots, toasters, phone chargers, etc. If it’s plugged in, it’s drawing at least a small amount of energy.

Customers also are advised to use surge protectors to minimize the impact on electronics for any type of outage. To report 24-hour gas and electric emergencies, call 353-HELP (4357).

CPS Energy is the nation’s largest municipally owned natural gas and electric utility, providing service to approximately 707,000 electric customers and 322,000 natural gas customers in and around the City of San Antonio. The utility ranks among the nation’s lowest-cost energy providers while ranking number 1 in wind-energy capacity among municipally owned utilities.

That's probably the way I would have responded "new guy" if I realized how stupid and lame my arguments and complaints were....really a whimpy, wussie response...but, just about as I expected!

"new guy", does that mean that your 'operation' was successful? Before you were a 'new guy' were you an 'old gal'? And, just because you know ONE, read that as 1 (One) guy that had an outage for 4 hours ... More ›

Sam, she's (4GT) not worth the time to comment on. Just a little old lady who does not know what she is talking about. My friend at work lost his power for 4 hours, as did his whole appartment complex.

"Sam Eagle", I know that to maintain equipment and plants for a two week perioD where the temp hardly ever got above freezing is similar to preparing your roof to be hit by a meteor....The cold blast was an anomaly ... More ›

4GT, it's not drivel. Nor is it a waste of time. This country is full of people like you who scritch and moan every time the tax man comes for your pittance. But yet you don't do a darn thing to affect real change. All you ... More ›

ERCOT really needs to spend its energy making sure electrical service providers maintain their equipment properly. If they did, the companies wouldn't have to worry about overloads. But too often, they don't do enough to inform ... More ›
