With the rotating outages, customers may experience an electric outage for approximately 30 minutes to one hour, though this can vary depending on the need. The rotating outages will continue until ERCOT instructs BPUB to discontinue.

BPUB is asking consumers to curtail electric usage. Customers are encouraged to turn down their thermostats by a few degrees and avoid using any non-essential appliances or lighting during this time.

BPUB recommends the following to conserve electricity:

  • Turn down thermostats to 68-degrees.
  • Close shades and blinds to reduce the amount of heat lost through windows.
  • Turn off and unplug non-essential lights and appliances.
  • Avoid using large appliances (i.e., ovens, washing machines, etc.).
  • Wear warm, comfortable clothing

BPUB will keep providing information throughout the emergency. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation.
