[ARCHIVED] Rotating Power Outages In Effect

Oncor map

Heads up, Sachse! Due to record-breaking electric demand and reduced power generation as a result of the extreme winter weather, rotating outages are now in effect. 

Rotating outages are controlled, temporary interruptions of electrical service that rotate through different parts of the electric grid. These outages typically last 15-45 minutes in each area but may vary. 

Conservation remains critical and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) continues to urge all Texans to limit and reduce their electric use as much as possible. Even small steps, such as turning down the thermostat to 68 degrees, turning off and unplugging non-essential lights and appliances, and avoiding the use of large appliances like washers, dryers and dishwashers, can help make a difference.
