Conservation

ERCOT is asking for conservation of electricity from 2 to 8 p.m. now that we’re in a heat wave and the windmills aren’t turning much. In fact they’re only producing 8 percent of normal. So we turned the AC up to 75 and unplugged major appliances not in use. They advised turning up to 78, but Bar has breathing problems.

The state’s Dimocrats are harping on the fact that we’re an energy capital of the world and the Republican governor isn’t doing…something… they’re not saying what. Their own president is in a war with oil and natural gas. Instead we’re to rely on windmills. In a time of little wind. Ridiculous.
