The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) shared the following announcement regarding the impending extreme cold weather events forecast across much of North America, starting this weekend and expected to continue through next Tuesday, January 16.

Texas RE and NERC urge Generator Owners and Operators, fuel suppliers, Reliability Coordinators, Balancing Authorities, and Transmission Operators to evaluate energy adequacy. Load-serving entities should review their demand projections to ensure the highest levels of reliability. Securing fuel supplies, readying units through winterization and dispatching fuel will require prudent attention throughout the holiday weekend.
