The October 14th Eclipse and HomeGrid Energy's Stack'd Series: A Perfect Match for Energy Resilience


The Eclipse's Impact on Solar Energy

The upcoming annular eclipse on October 14th is expected to significantly impact solar energy production across North and South America. According to a report by Solcast, states like Texas could lose up to 17% of their daily solar energy production. The eclipse will last for about 3 hours, with the peak lasting only seconds. The event will affect power grids like CAISO and ERCOT, which manage a significant proportion of solar assets in the U.S.

Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) is gearing up for the solar eclipse, which will affect Texas' solar power output. The eclipse will pass over key cities like Odessa, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi and could significantly reduce solar energy generation for a few hours around midday. After a summer of high demand, ERCOT is developing plans to maintain grid stability during the event, which may include energy conservation measures or rolling blackouts.
