Oh. So suddenly you know what you’re talking about? Just using humor. I didn’t understand everything you wrote but the way it ended made me feel better.
Oncor the distribution provider for north Texas has under 25K out now. That will increase with precip as trees give out but this is like a bad t storm.
The test will be tomorrow morning but it’s not cold enough south of Austin for this to be a big event. Voltage and frequency are currently being managed to be lower not increased meaning there is more power than places to put it… very few of the quick start resources are even online yet.

Appreciate it more than you know. Keep the updates coming por favor.

@Donnyboy what was the deal with the ERCOT Dashboard yesterday? Local news was making a big deal about it being down and not being able to see how the grid was performing…trying to stoke a little fear about last year

To my knowledge it was all unrelated they had no telemetry issues with the facilities and were sending the data that is displayed on the dashboard to all participants….. it really just seemed like an website problem. They would have wanted the info on display because the story is good for them tons of reserves
