ERCOT opted against weatherizing and updating their generation, transmission, and distribution facilities, despite similar blackouts in 1989 and 2011, after which both the Public Utilities Commission of Texas and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recommended Texas upgrade the power grid to prepare for freezes due to cold weather.

Impact of Power Grid Failure in Texas

ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas) and power companies throughout the state failed the people of Texas during one of the most vicious natural disasters of the last century. As temperatures dipped into the single digits, people found themselves without power to stay warm. This led to significant property damage as well as injury and death.
Electricity blackouts left much of Texas in the cold over the last few weeks. Pipes froze only to bust when weather got above zero and water flooded homes causing millions in property damage. Without heat and water, people were left in the dark and thirsty.
Money lost is only the beginning of the problems. Many people have lost loved ones, paying the ultimate sacrifice, due to the failure of ERCOT, manager of the state’s main electric grid, and power companies that ignored repeated warnings about the state’s insufficient power infrastructure.
