BTU and ERCOT urge customers to conserve electricity
Due to the extreme weather, and the rotating outages at BTU and across the state, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) is urging customers to conserve as much electricity as possible. Steps recommended by ERCOT:
- Limit electricity usage to only that consumption which is absolutely necessary. Turn off all unnecessary lights, appliances, and electronic equipment.
- Businesses should minimize the use of electric lighting and electricity-consuming equipment as much as possible.
- Large consumers of electricity should consider shutting down or reducing non-essential production processes.
