ERCOT supply and demand
All eyes are on the Texas power grid as consumption goes up. We have made it easy for you to check on how the grid is performing against demand. ERCOT -- the Electric Reliability Council of Texas -- has posted graphics showing demand current demand for energy, along with how much energy is being used across the state.
You can check that chart at anytime online. Here's a link that explains what's on the ERCOT site and how to check.
The ERCOT site also has system-wide demand, combined wind and solar, real-time energy prices and more.

What does Oncor and ERCOT do?
Oncor and ERCOT are two different entities. Oncor manages the transmission lines and infrastructure for delivering energy to North Texas homes. So if you have a downed power line or outage, it will be Oncor who will respond and have to fix it.
ERCOT is the public agency responsible for managing the statewide power supply.
