The Woodlands Is Not Part Of The ERCOT Grid

Trivia information: The ERCOT region…does not include the El Paso area, the Texas Panhandle, Northeast Texas (Longview, Marshall, and Texarkana), or Southeast Texas (Beaumont, Port Arthur, and The Woodlands)

Not that it is necessarily good or bad thing, but just curious exactly why?

It's because Entergy's wires are part of the Eastern Interconnection, and not the Texas Interconnection (aka ERCOT service area). They've tried to join ERCOT in the past, but the connections required would potentially put ERCOT under Federal regulation. ERCOT is specifically designed to resist efforts towards Federal regulation of Texas' electrical grid.
