ERCOT Asks Residents to Conserve
Temperatures are on the rise and ERCOT, the state’s grid operator, is anticipating a high demand for electricity. They’re asking Texans to conserve. You can help lighten the load by making a few adjustments in your home this week:
• Raise your thermostat a few degrees or more. Running your fans counter clockwise will also keep cool air from rising
• Use large appliances like washing machines and ovens sparingly in the afternoon and early evening when demand for electricity peaks
• Turn your blinds upward to reduce incoming heat
• Unplug devices that aren’t in use
