ERCOT Issues Voluntary Conservation Notice

(FORT BEND COUNTY) - The Electric Reliability Council of Texas has issued a Voluntary Conservation Notice for 3 - 8 p.m. today, Aug. 17, due to extreme temperatures, forecasted high demand, and lower reserves due to low wind generation.

ERCOT is asking Texans to voluntarily reduce electric use, if safely able to do so. ERCOT is not currently in emergency operations, according to officials.
