CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — ERCOT has extended its Weather Watch alert through August 27 for the state of Texas.

The continued higher temperatures forecasted for the next several days can cause a high electrical demand with the potential for lower reserves.

However, grid conditions are expected to be normal and there will be enough energy to meet electrical demands, so there is no expectation of an energy emergency at this time.
