Be prepared for the possibility of rolling blackouts tonight and again in the morning.

ERCOT says one of the transmission lines used to bring power to the Valley is undergoing a scheduled maintenance, plus utility customers in the Rio Grande Valley are using large amounts of power to stay warm.

The rotating outages may begin shortly and again between 6 and 9 a.m. Friday morning.

If you don't need the lights on in your house, shut them off and lower your thermostat to 68 degrees to conserve power.
