Gonzales, Texas-- August 1, 2011 -- At 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) issued an appeal to the public to conserve energy. GVEC and other electric utility companies throughout the state ask that both residential and commercial customers comply with this request as much as possible to avoid the possibility for service interruptions.

Consumers can keep updated on the situation by following GVEC on Facebook or GVEC_Tweets on Twitter.

GVEC is an electric cooperative that serves over 68,000 meters across 13 Texas counties. The service area spans 3,500 square miles across South Central Texas.
