HOUSTON – The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which operates the state of Texas’ electric power grid, on Sunday warned of the potential for rolling blackouts on Monday.

The state faces a “potential reserve capacity shortage with no market solution available,” ERCOT said in an operating notice posted on its website. Record temperatures are expected across much of the state on Monday.
