March 12 — The Texas economy has seen robust growth, and so has the demand for electricity to power our homes and businesses. In fact, ERCOT, which manages our state’s grid, projects a peak demand this summer of 76,696 megawatts. That’s 2,000 MW higher than it projected ahead of last summer, and nearly 2,000 MW higher than ERCOT’s all-time system peak demand that was reached last summer.
