The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, asks Texas residents to conserve electricity until Monday, Jan. 15.

The agency asks residents to hold power specifically between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. if it is safe to do so.

Due to continued freezing temperatures, very high demand and unseasonably low wind, operating reserves for the Texas power grid are expected to be low Monday morning, Jan. 15, before sunrise. ERCOT is expecting similar conditions on Tuesday, Jan. 16.

ERCOT says it is not experiencing any emergency conditions at this time but will say the agency will remain vigilant and communicate if further emergency operations are necessary.
