Routine website maintenance between midnight and 6 a.m. Monday, August 17, could result in delays and the inability to access certain areas of CoServ.com. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
When CoServ was required to shed load by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) during last week’s extreme winter storm, several school districts and large businesses stepped up to proactively lower their electric and natural gas usage so there would be more power for homes.
CoServ Members are never charged based on estimated usage -- only actual usage.
The CoServ Electric Board of Directors has decided that the rate set on Feb. 1, which includes the PCRF, will remain the same for February and March.
CoServ wants to thank everyone for their patience after a very difficult and challenging week. Our electric Members aren't used to even a minor power outage, let alone one that lasts for hours! The numbers back up the fact that we are the most reliable utility in Texas year in and year out. We hope our Electric Members and Gas Customers are safe, warm and comfortable this weekend.
CoServ ended its Emergency Response Plan Friday as ERCOT conditions returned to normal.
Gas pressure has fluctuated throughout this week's winter weather emergency. Our crews have been in the field consistently to help maintain pressure and ensure reliable gas service for Customers.
CoServ has stopped the rotating outages at the request of the state’s grid operator and we have restored power to the majority of our Members.
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas stopped calling for load shed Thursday, meaning CoServ and other utilities can stop rotating outages for the time being. The state remains in an Energy Emergency Alert 3, the highest level of alert, so ERCOT could call for rotating outages again to maintain grid stability as the state recovers from this winter weather event.
CoServ crews Electric Linemen and Gas Crews have been out on the streets, in apartment complexes and anywhere else that there’s a problem throughout this winter weather emergency.
ERCOT continues to request that we – and all other electric utilities in the state – shed load to try to stabilize the grid. This means rotating outages are still in effect.
