Hot Weather, High Electrical Usage This Summer

 

 

It’s going to be a hot summer in Texas, and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas is predicting record-breaking usage. According to ERCOT, the difference between the amount of electricity Texas can produce and the amount customers are expected to use this summer is the narrowest it’s been in more than a decade. Retirement, over the last couple of years, of coal-fired power plants, particularly in East Texas, means less output, but with the same demand.
