ONCOR, Oncor, the electric transmission and distribution serving most of North Texas, is being temporarily shut down power across its service territory to compensate for the loss of production contingencies in the areas served by the State Council Electric Reliability of Texas. Oncor, which does not every generation, transmission and other utilities across the head for Texas ERCOT to manage the situation. Temporarily disabling the power in a controlled manner, ERCOT tries to prevent uncontrolled failures occur across the state.

Although the duration of symptoms for each client can vary in length, Oncor is working hard to ensure no power outage is longer than 30 minutes. If the cut of a customer takes longer than 30 minutes, they should call 888.313.4747 because they may experience an outage caused by weather or other reasons.

ERCOT, which manages the power grid in most of the state, has applied for control failures across the state, after some production facilities unexpectedly went online shortly before 6 pm Wednesday which, when combined with electricity demand significant time of intense cold, created a shortage of electricity.

At that time, we do not know how long the outage lasted stock. ERCOT monitors the supply and demand of electricity in most of the state.
