Power Usage Is A Growing Problem In Texas

Excel has been asking us to lower our electric consumption.  And that problem isn’t just local.  It is quickly becoming a state-wide problem.

Extreme heat has been with us all summer but power issues have thankfully been minimal but the problem is quickly growing in Texas’ more populated areas.

ERCOT in Houston has been asking customers to cut back on power usage and as we enter the latter part of summer the problem promises to get worse.

You can do your part by turning of as many lights as possible and limiting your electric demand as much as possible.
