We manage the flow of electric power to more than 26 million Texas customers -- representing 90 percent of the state's electric load.

No additional outages overnight, although a few generating units tripped. Energy consumption is much higher this morning compared to yesterday, but there is sufficient power to serve load over morning peak. Grid operator expects to come out of emergency conditions later today.
We know this is hard. We continue to work as quickly and safely as possible to restore power. We gained some MWs overnight but are back to 14,000 MW of load shed; lost east DC-tie imports due to Midwest power emergency. We hope to reduce outages over the course of the day.
We should be able to restore some customers this afternoon due to additional wind & solar output, & additional thermal generation that has told us they expect to become available. But, the amount we restore will depend on how much generation is actually able to come online.
