It's heating up in the Basin. Now power officials are giving you a warning ahead of time.

ERCOT says they're hoping to avoid rolling blackouts this summer but they can't do it without your help.

During peak summer hours, they want to remind everyone to turn up your thermostat and conserve as much power as possible.

Peak hours are normally between the hours of 4 to 7 p.m.
