Pablo Vegas, ERCOT’s new president and CEO, addressed the board of directors in December before Texas’ last cold blast moved through the state. He said at the time ERCOT forecasted demand for power to reach its peak of 70,000 megawatts the morning temperatures were expected to be coldest across the state.
No major power issues were reported related to the state’s power grid during that freeze.
