"AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Managers of the state's biggest electrical grid say peak electricity demand has set its second record of the week. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which operates that grid that covers most of the state, says demand peaked at 70,572 megawatts between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday. That top's Monday's record by 403 megawatts. One megawatt is about enough electricity to power about 200 homes during hot weather running air conditioners. ERCOT officials say the grid has sufficient generation to meet the demand. ___ On the Net: Electric Reliability Council of Texas: http://www.ercot.com", www.mysanantonio.com
"Anybody who has lived in North Texas for more than a year knows that August is the month that makes us appreciate air conditioning the most. Which also means it's also the month that puts the most demand on the Electric Reliability Council of Texas aka ERCOT, the power grid that links most of Texas.", www.dallasnews.com
"Texas is breaking its record for electricity use. It happened Monday with demand peaking around 5PM and is expected to be repeated most of this week as the hot weather continues. But there’s a controversy over how to meet that demand for electricity in Houston.", www.houstonpublicmedia.org
