Texas

The city of Farmersville said the lights would be out Tuesday evening, ERCOT said “absolutely not.”

FARMERSVILLE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – After the Farmersville Fire Department announced on social media that the city would be outages Wednesday evening, the fire department cited the Public Utilities Commission of Texas as saying the outages were not ordered.

The fire department initially said it was done at the request of the Electric Reliability Board of Texas starting Wednesday at 8 p.m.

When CBS 11 contacted ERCOT, a spokesperson said this was “completely out of ERCOT’s control” and that “the team is working to fix this immediately.”

The Public Utilities Commission also said ERCOT has not ordered any rollover shutdowns.

Farmersville City Manager Ben White said in a statement that the social media posts stemmed from a miscommunication.

“Due to a miscommunication, the previous accidental coverage will no longer be necessary. We are aware that the previous post caused alarm and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

ERCOT asked Texans earlier Wednesday for the second time this week To save energy between the peak hours of 14:00 to 21:00
