Update: Scourge of the Heavens In Play: Texas Power Grid Operator Urges Customers to Conserve Electricity After Six Plants Go Offline, but Don’t Worry People, They Have Things Under Control. If the Power Out, HNewsWire Suggest You Find a Shade Tree and Pray, Make More Sense Then (Ercot)

HNewsWire: Texans must be prepared for a power outage. Again. According to a new bombshell report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), while Texas has made some progress in increasing surplus energy flow to the grid for times of peak demand, power will be extremely tight this summer, and Texans should expect rolling blackouts during the hottest months of the year. According to the newly issued 2022 Summer Reliability Assessment, Texas, as well as sections of California and the Southwest, are in a “elevated risk category of energy crisis.” The increased strain on the system is caused by a mix of exceptionally high temperatures and weather conditions, inadequate generator care and maintenance throughout Texas, continuous supply chain challenges, and rising demand. NERC also identified cyber threats, wildfires, and a scarcity of coal power inputs as important challenges that…

Texas Power Plants Are Operational 24/7. Texas Heat Drives Record Highs in Power Demand. What Could Go Wrong?

HNewsWire: Texas power plants are operating nonstop as a result of the state’s extreme heat. ERCOT, a Texas-based company, now uses conservation alerts routinely rather than just in extreme emergencies. The design of the system itself, which lacks adequate capacity to keep up with load growth, is the issue rather than the weather. Because of the extreme heat in Texas, the state’s grid operator is directing facilities to operate at a historically high rate, often pushing them to postpone maintenance in order to maintain producing energy. For the time being, this has helped keep the lights on, but the short-term perspective is straining a system that is already close to breaking point. Officials have twice in the last week urged Texans to use less energy in the sweltering afternoons as demand veered dangerously close to exceeding supply. According to Michele…

Update:Texas Group ERCOT Has Come To Rely on Conservation Alerts as a Normal Operating Procedure Rather Than an Exceptional Emergency Measure. The Problem Is Not the Weather but the System Design Itself, Which Has Insufficient Capacity to Match Load Growth

Texas Factories Dial Back Power Usage To Balance Strained Grid HNewsWire: Update, Some of the country’s most powerful political authorities neglected to allocate funds appropriately, resulting in the recent outages of the electric system. There are certain people who need to be held accountable, and I believe the next election will bring about significant alterations as a result of the ongoing grid crisis. For the second time this week, Texas’ power grid operator took emergency action and asked customers to conserve power Wednesday afternoon to avoid rolling blackouts as a heatwave strained power supplies. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) sent customers notices three hours before 1400 local time to reduce power instead of the 18-hour notice for Monday. ERCOT blamed Wednesday’s conservation appeal on record high electric demand and the lack of wind and solar power as a…

Colder & Snowier Winter Headed for U.S. With Incoming ‘Polar Vortex’ — Texas Inspects Power Plants Ahead Of Freeze Warning — ERCOT Claims it Is “Confident That

It doesn’t matter how bad it gets. Our leaders will never admit failure. They will look at the disaster they are creating and call it success. This is what is truly chilling about the unfolding crisis: They do not believe it is a crisis. They think this is a reset to the way things should work. Newsletter Name Please enter your name.

The Texas Freeze Project, BS Statement From

Texas Ercot… The real question for investigators is how come with two massive NRG owned power plants sitting just outside Houston, many of its citizens were without electricity for 55 hours in sub-freezing temperatures? Maybe NRG Plants should be better prepared for less-than-optimal weather scenarios as somehow Minnesota keeps the power on with much colder weather in the winter each year. I guess it was a good thing in the end that NRG changed the stadium name from Reliant Stadium to NRG Stadium.  We examine the Texas Freeze Crisis in this video, detailing some of the important questions that need to be answered in any rigorous, objective investigation.  “Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed” (Isa. 59:14, NLT)…We Turned Our Backs On GOD, Now We…

BS Statement From Texas Ercot: Since Nobody Can

Disprove a Negative, One Just Has to Take Them at Their Word That Dozens of People Died So That Millions More Could Live… or Something Like That!… Wind power did this to Texas.  Be very afraid of the Green New Deal. One week ago, long before almost anyone else realized just how serious the situation in the plains states in general and Texas in particular would be as a result of the cascade of soaring nat gas prices, we warned that all hell was about to break loose. But not even we had any idea just how close to total collapse the system nearly was. On Thursday, ERCOT officials said that the Texas power grid was “seconds and minutes” away from a catastrophic failure that could have left Texans in the dark for months. They should know: ERCOT is the entity…
