Electric Reliability Council of Texas asks consumers to limit electric use

Because of the cold weather, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas is asking you to conserve as much energy as possible while people are cranking up their heaters.
 There are several ways you can help save energy.
Avoid using large appliances like washers, dryers, and electric ovens.
Turn off as many lights as possible. and unplug small appliances you aren't using.
Close your shades and blinds at night  to reduce the amount of heat lost through windows.
And try to keep your thermostat at no higher than 68 degrees.
As for whether you'll have to save energy Tuesday, we haven't seen any alerts from ERCOT yet.
