Tesla electric cars began warning owners about periods of peak power consumption

Tesla electric cars began warning owners about periods of peak power consumption

The Texas power system became infamous last February, when unprecedented cold windy weather in the area left not only a significant portion of residential neighborhoods, but also a number of manufacturing plants without power.
This year, Tesla electric cars began warning their owners in Texas that during periods of peak energy consumption it is better not to charge them.Image source: TeslaIt is known that some time ago not only Tesla CEO Elon Musk moved to Texas, but also the company's headquarters.
Next door in Austin, a new Tesla Model Y assembly plant was built and recently started operating.
For the foreseeable future it will be ready to put Semi trucks, Cybertruck pickups, second-generation Roadster sports car and even Optimus (Tesla Bot) humanoid robots on the assembly line.
In all likelihood, Tesla will also assemble robotic cabs here, so integrating the business into the local energy system is a crucial task for the company.As Electrek explains, Tesla is actively building stationary electricity storage facilities in Texas, which will help level out seasonal fluctuations in consumption.
Solar panels and residential electricity storage systems are being installed in residential neighborhoods.
One car owner on the pages of Reddit confessed that his Tesla electric car issued a recommendation to avoid charging between the hours of 3 p.m.
and 8 p.m.
in the coming days.
It echoes exactly the recommendations of the local electric regulator, which, in light of the approaching hot season, urged Texans to limit their energy use during this time of day.
The other day, a spike in power consumption on the local power grid has already caused an emergency shutdown of six generating facilities.
At the same time, citizens were advised to set thermostats in their homes to 26 degrees Celsius or higher.
