ERCOT this afternoon issued a request for conservation for this late afternoon and evening, stating that, "Due to a combination of high generation outages typical in April and higher-than-forecasted demand from a stalled cold front over Texas, ERCOT may enter into emergency conditions this afternoon."

ERCOT stressed that it did not expect any customer outages as a result of the conditions

Rather, any emergency declaration would allow ERCOT to access tools that will bring supply and demand back into line.

As of publication time, operating reserves had been trending upward from a low of just under 2,500 MW to about 3,400 MW, with reserves generally growing over the past hour. Peak demand was right around 50,000 MW

As of publication time, ERCOT did not at any point today enter into Energy Emergency Alert (EEA) 1, which has a threshold of operating reserves dropping below 2,300 MW

ERCOT reported 32,000 MW in offline generation today, with many units having taken routine maintenance outages in preparation for summer

The stalled cold front did not reduce temperatures, and associated air conditioning load, in certain parts of the state as forecast
