    Texas power prices nearly triple to record high as heat bakes state

    Spot power prices in Texas almost tripled to a record high for Friday as the state's grid operator took emergency measures for a second time this week to keep the lights on as consumers cranked up their air conditioners to escape a heat wave. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), grid operator for much of the state, called on consumers to conserve energy and issued energy emergency alerts on Tuesday and Thursday after the shutdown of some generation and curtailment of some power lines caused reserves to fall. Next-day power prices at the ERCOT North hub soared from $265 per megawatt hour (MWh) for Thursday to $751 for Friday, their highest on record, according to Refinitiv data going back to 2010.
