ERCOT News Release: Sufficient Generation Expected for Fall and Winter!

Sept. 6, 2018- The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) released its final Seasonal Assessment of Resource Adequacy (SARA) report for the upcoming fall season (October-November 2018) and its preliminary assessment for the winter season (December 2018-Feb 2018). ERCOT anticipates there will be sufficient installed generating capacity available to serve system-wide forecasted demand this fall and winter

“ERCOT studies multiple scenarios prior to each season to determine a range of potential risks resulting from extreme temperatures, generation outages and low wind output,” said manager of Resource Adequacy Pete Warnken. “Our assessments show a healthy amount of operating reserves heading into the fall season.”
