AUSTIN, Texas — Texas' electric grid operators say they need more staff.
Without the manpower, leaders with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) said they will not meet the grid reliability deadlines.
After the deadly February 2021 storm, Winter Storm Uri, the Public Utility Commission (PUC) created a plan to make the electric grid more reliable.
ERCOT manages the state’s grid. It's ERCOT's job to carry out the commission’s plan.
