Luminant's dedicated team of 4,000-plus employees worked diligently throughout ERCOT's level two energy emergency alert today to generate much-needed electricity for the state of Texas.
All of Luminant's baseload power plant units were available for generation, including two nuclear units, 12 lignite-fueled units and multiple peaking natural gas units.
