Texas Grid ‘Well Prepared’ for Demand From Storm, Governor Says

The Texas grid operator is ready to handle any increased energy demand due to the winter storm that’s set to strike the U.S. state this week, Governor Greg Abbott said.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas is “well prepared for conditions as they currently stand, but remains flexible in order to be responsive to power demand needs,” Abbott, 64, said during a Tuesday press conference in Austin, Texas. The highest demand for power from the grid will be Friday morning, he said.
