HOUSTON — Anytime the Texas power grid is the subject of a conservation advisory, or when the weather turns extreme in the Lone Star State, it's a good time to check on supply and demand.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas has a dashboard that allows you to monitor real-time grid conditions.  

Supply and demand

This is a real-time look at supply of power and demand, as reported by ERCOT. It also shows projected supply and demand, based on forecast. 

Grid conditions

ERCOT is tracking the state of the grid, as well as the state of the operating reserve. 

There are several more real-time monitors that you can check on ERCOT's site, including system-wide demand, solar, current prices, and more.
