      ERCOT: We're prepared for fall, winter demand

      AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The manager of the electric grid serving most of Texas says it's ready to meet the electric power demands expected in the upcoming autumn and winter.

      Warren Lasher is the director of system planning for the Electric Reliability Council of Texas. He says ERCOT's system "appears to be well-prepared for fall electric needs, and that outlook continues into the coming winter months.

      Lasher spoke after ERCOT issued its seasonal assessment of peak demand for the coming two seasons on Tuesday.

      ERCOT says peak demand for this summer has remained below historical highs.
