Luminant's fleet of nuclear, coal and natural gas power plants helped power Texas through today's ERCOT energy emergency alert, which occurred on a second consecutive day of record-setting demand. All of Luminant's power plant units were available for generation and the company took the necessary steps to maximize generation through the day's record high temperatures.
During the peak, the company was generating 13,500 megawatts of capacity and made available roughly 500 additional MWs through tolling arrangements.
