Rolling Blackouts in the Harris County Area this Morning

Rolling Blackouts in the Houston Region due to stresses on the Texas Power Grid. You may loose power for about 15-45 minutes if you live in the region.

Information from ERCOT…
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) has instructed utilities to begin rotating outages to compensate for a generation shortage due to numerous plant trips that occurred because of the extreme weather.

Rotating outages are controlled, temporary interruptions of electric service, typically lasting 10-45 minutes per neighborhood. The locations and durations are determined by the local utilities. Critical need customers such as hospitals and nursing homes are generally not included.

It is not known at this time how long the need for rotating outages will last.
