ERCOT no longer in emergency situation Electric demand lower than forecast this morning

February 3, 2011, 12:15 pm -- ERCOT operations has cancelled the emergency procedures that began early Wednesday morning. The peak demand this morning was 55,460 MW (for 9-10 am) which did not surpass the new winter record set Wednesday evening between 7 and 8 pm.

“We are very appreciative of the sacrifices of those who were without power during the rotating outages, and we also appreciate the conservation efforts by consumers during this emergency situation, as well as the load resources in our demand response programs,” said ERCOT CEO Trip Doggett. “We also want to thank the media for their assistance in getting information out to the public about the need to conserve.”

“With continued cold temperatures and snow predicted across the state, we ask that everyone continue to conserve their electricity usage until temperatures moderate. “
