For the second time this month, Luminant, the state's largest power generator, today helped produce much-needed electricity to keep Texans safe and cool during record-setting demand. The company relied on a mix of 24 nuclear, coal and natural gas plant units to generate 13,728 MW of reliable power during today's peak.
“Throughout the hot summer months, all hands are on deck. Our employees throughout the system, from generation to mining and support, deserve a big pat on the back for continuing to safely and reliably power Texas,” said Luminant's chief fossil officer Mike Williams.
“Days like today remind us of why we strive for operational excellence each day – sustaining safe and reliable operations is achieved by our commitment to safety, proactive maintenance and working together as a team,” added Rafael Flores, chief nuclear officer.
