Controlled, Rotating Outages Underway
Controlled, rotating outages are underway as required by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas.
All electricity consumers in Texas, including Farmers Electric Cooperative members, are experiencing outages due to load reduction requirements directed by ERCOT.
We expect these outages to be about 10-45 minutes in any given area, and the amount of time between outages will vary depending on how much electrical load we are required to curtail.
Please note that due to the historic cold winter weather, restoring outages can take longer than normal. You can help ensure that the power comes back on smoothly by turning off heaters and other appliances until after power is restored. This reduces the effect of “cold load” causing problems when power is restored.
