Officials responsible for ensuring the reliable supply of electricity to Texans have successfully adapted to the challenges caused by the COVID-19 health crisis, says the Texas Senate committee chairman responsible for oversight of the agency.
“Everyone that can work from home is working from home,” ERCOT spokeswoman Leslie Sopko told Breitbart in a phone interview.
On-site workers have committed to rigorous social distancing, including inside the control room.
During this time, only grid operators and cleaning crews are allowed inside ERCOT’s control rooms.
They are also required to maintain social distancing while working — even inside control rooms.
