Entergy-Texas is asking customers to conserve electricity this morning. The Midcontinent
Independent System Operator, which is Entergy’s power reliability coordinator, is making the
request because of use of electricity could exceed available generation due to higher that
expected demand for power. Some ways residential customers can reduce electricity includes
lowering the thermostat to 68 degrees or lower, delay laundry, washing dishes, and bathing
until later in the day. This request is through 11:00 this morning.
