As you are all aware, hurricane Harvey had a major impact on Texas and has left many residents without power. On August 28th, in order to facilitate the monitoring of the effects of the hurricane, the PUCT opened PUC Project 47552 – Issues Related to the Disaster Resulting From Hurricane Harvey. At today’s open meeting, PUC commissioners discussed this project as well as impacts the hurricane has had on central and southeast Texas. During this discussion, Commissioner Anderson noted that he would like more detailed information from every entity affected by the hurricane. Because of this statement, we urge you to maintain detailed information as to how the hurricane might have affected you and your provision of service. Also, be prepared to answer questions from the commission and possibly ERCOT/TRE detailing any storm related damages or outages as well as how you have handled any damages.
Contract our Texas regulatory attorneys, Chris Reeder or Maria Faconti, if you have any questions. We sincerely hope you have not been affected by the hurricane.
