Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT)The West Texas electricity power line infrastructure is feeling the strain of the natural gas and oil booms in Texas.  ERCOT, the organization that is responsible for the reliability of the Texas electricity grid has just announced $57 million in upgrades to the transmission lines that serve West Texas.

ERCOT also provided a report on how the electricity grid held up during the summer of 2012.  There had been a great deal of concern that there would not be enough power to meet the needs of consumers throughout the state if temperatures got too hot or if there was some kind of supply disruption.

In the same report they also issued their forecast for the Fall (should be enough electricity) and for the winter (might or might not be enough electricity).

The full report from ERCOT can be read here.
