Following “aggressive grid management planning,” the Texas electrical grid is prepared to meet the winter 2022-2023 forecast peak demand of nearly 67.4 GW, the Energy Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) said.

ERCOT late last month released its Seasonal Assessment of Resource Adequacy (SARA) report, in which it detailed the 87.3 GW of resources that are expected to be on-hand from December through February.

“The Texas grid is more reliable and resilient than ever before due to landmark reliability reforms” by ERCOT and the Public Utilities Commission of Texas “implemented in the past year and a half, including required winterization of the generation fleet, and added firm fuel supply service (FFSS) by a number of generators,” an ERCOT spokesperson told NGI.
