Texas led the charge into wind energy, and is now facing blackouts – just when they need the electricity the most.
The state is facing potential power shortages that could leave you with out electricity this summer and you might not know it, until it happens.
But because so many people use so much electricity during hot summer months, it knocks that number down to less than 10-percent.
That’s when we are at a higher risk of having uncontrolled black outs.
In order to make sure that doesn’t happen, ERCOT is asking customers to be conservative with their electricity.
Otherwise they will tell electric companies to shut off power to portions of their customers.
