AUSTIN, Texas — The state’s electric grid operator must give you earlier warning if they expect blackouts.
The alert will come from the DPS alert system and must include what caused or may cause the outage.
If known up to 48 hours in advance, the State must tell you when power is expected to be out and for how long.
Texans should also be told when to expect your power to return. The plan was approved Thursday, Nov. 16.
