ERCOT urges energy conservation through tonight

Really? From Twitter. Sounds like a bunch of generators shut down and now rates are going to go up, at least temporarily. In April. ENRON, anyone?

Alert: Due to a combination of high gen outages typical in April & higher-than-forecasted demand caused by a stalled cold front over TX, ERCOT may enter emergency conditions. We do not expect customer outages. Declaring an emergency would allow us to access additional resources.
