“During this period of national emergency, we know many of our members will be spending more time at home in order to protect themselves and their communities. During this uncertain time, rest assured that PEC will continue to deliver the reliable power you rely on.
“While we have temporarily closed our offices to member interactions, our work continues. The power grid is considered critical infrastructure, and plans are in place to continue to provide electricity should the emergency significantly impact operations. At this time, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) says there has been no substantial effect on the demand for electricity.
“PEC will continue to focus on keeping our workforce healthy so we can provide you the uninterrupted service you depend on. Temporarily halting employee/member interactions is just one of many proactive changes PEC has taken in order to do so, and we are watching closely to decide if any additional steps become necessary.
