ERCOT entered emergency operations due to a drop in both operating reserves and frequency. By entering EEA 2, ERCOT was able to utilize additional reserve resources to protect the reliability of the grid. No power outages associated with the ERCOT power grid were necessary. The Weather Watch remains in effect through Sept. 8 due to continued higher temperatures, high demand, and the potential for lower reserves.
In the event any GISD campuses experience rolling outages, we have been notified by GEUS that the power outage will be 30-45 minutes. For classes without windows, the classes will be relocated to the cafeteria. School will remain in session and schedules will run as a normal school day.
