ERCOT: Turn out that light before the grid does it

DALLAS (AP) — The operator of the electric grid that lights most of the state is appealing to customers to use less electricity because of the extreme cold.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas is asking Texans to reduce their electricity usage through noon Friday. ERCOT also warned of an increased risk of rotating blackouts in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Central Texas and a bit of East Texas with sleet and freezing rain and drizzle in their forecasts. Many Central Texas school districts have canceled Friday classes, and the University of Texas at Austin has delayed classes until noon.

Winter weather snarled traffic in North Texas on Thursday.
