View Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT)

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) operates the electric grid and manages the deregulated market in much of Texas. We have full experience in ERCOT proceedings that involve the complex protocols and guides involving rates and services for power transmission, distribution, and generation. Our attorneys regularly attend ERCOT committee meetings and advise clients on protocol revisions and other ERCOT matters. Among the issues we address:

  • Interpretations of system operator rules,
  • Technical aspects of ERCOT rules and provisions,
  • Protocol or operating guide revisions,
  • Market issues,
  • Reliability issues, and
  • Terms and conditions of access to transmission facilities.
