Landgraf Questions ERCOT About Outages

ODESSA — State Representative Brooks Landgraf (R-Odessa) submitted a letter to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) demanding an explanation for the large number of offline generators that prompted a call for Texans to conserve energy for the rest of the week.

“Once again, ERCOT is leaving Texans with more questions than answers,” Landgraf writes in the letter. “In order to ensure I can answer the flood of questions I’m now receiving from my constituents, I demand pertinent information related to this most recent incident.”

On Monday, ERCOT issued a conservation alert asking Texans to safely reduce their electric usage through Friday, June 18, citing tight grid conditions due to a high number of forced generation outages.
