BRAZOS VALLEY, TX — UPDATE: BTU Energy is still encouraging customers to reduce as much energy as possible Friday morning.
It is very important to conserve energy this morning - PLEASE resist the urge to turn up your heat. We still need to be vigilant, as most of Texas is still well below freezing. Please conserve as much as possible this morning.— Bryan Texas Utilities (@BTU_BryanTX) February 19, 2021
However, ERCOT wants to remind State residents they are still under Energy Emergency Alert 3, the same level since Monday. Thus, BTU customers should expect additional outages, until temperatures moderate and more power plants in ERCOT become operational. On that same note, BTU shares their energy generation remains fully operational, and their field personnel remains fully staffed.
Regardless, BTU is still strongly encouraging everyone to keep using as little energy as possible during this time, in order to reduce demand on the power grid.
If any customers are without power while the outages are suspended, it is likely a weather-related outage and they are asked to call (979)-822-3777. According to their news release, BTU crews are ready to respond 24 hours a day.
