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 people about the need for regular, small rate hikes. So the infrastructure gets neglected and falls into disrepair.

A lot of these municipal systems were built during the days when only the U.S. government offices used computers. There was no Internet creating a constant power draw, so the systems were built small. Now, our electricity demand is huge, but the infrastructure has not kept pace. Hence, the blackouts like the ones in South America in 1999 and northeastern U.S. in 2003 ( http://archives.cbc.ca/science_technology/energy_production/clips/13545/)

So, ERCOT, if it's an issue of lack of maintenance or the grid's inability to keep up, TELL US! Maybe people would be more inclined to pay into the system so that it might remain viable and reliable.

There is no excuse why a mostly self-contained power grid that isn't connected to other states can't keep the lights on in the second-largest state in the country.
