ERCOT, PUCT discuss grid reliability ahead of the winter season

AUSTIN – Public Utility Commission of Texas Chairman Peter Lake and ERCOT CEO Pablo Vegas held a press conference Tuesday to update Texans on grid reliability and readiness for winter 2022-2023.

Officials also discussed the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas’ Seasonal Assessment of Resource Adequacy (SARA) and Capacity, Demand and Reserves (CDR) reports.

EROT released its 2022-2023 Winter SARA and latest CDR report:
