    Texans paid $28B more for electricity after deregulation, and now taxpayers have to pay to make the electricity network reliable?

    Socialize the risk, privatize the profits.

    bag Repugs bribed as always

    "Texas accounts for 15.5% of the cash receipts for cattle in the United States. ...

    Texas has had 11 million head of cattle or more every year since 1967 until 2014.

    The largest cattle inventory ever recorded in Texas was in 1975 at 16.6 million head.

    Texas is the 4th largest food producer (by value) in the United States."

    CPS Energy to propose 'provisional rate increase' due in part to winter storm, pandemic

    It would be the first rate hike since 2014.

    The proposal includes an estimated 4-4.5% increase to maintain operations and support growth and

    an estimated 1-2% to make up for unrecovered costs during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Also included is a proposed 1.5-3% increase to pay for costs incurred during February Storm Uri.

    CPS Energy estimates the average impact for customers over the next year ranges between $9.70 and $14.60.

    While the pandemic-related increase is projected to last up to five years, the increase due to the winter storm could remain in effect for up to 25 years.

    Texas at ‘Elevated Risk' of Summer Power Shortages, Potential Outages, Regulators Warn

    [COLOR=rgba(13, 13, 13, 0.9)] Texas is expected to see above-normal temperatures this summer and a higher risk of drought across much of the state, potentially increasing demand for power and putting more strain on the grid.[/COLOR]

    I can't find whether the bag TX legislature did anything about PUC/ERCOT.

    If not, PUC/ERCOT is not on Patrick's menu of red meat he wants to throw at the rubes in the requested special session

    PUC/ERCOT still gambling with 7% headroom capacity, vs the industry standard 15%?

    deregulation/privatization is a total scam, anywhere.

    Republican government in Texas is failing at basic stuff

    Texas’ main power grid struggled to keep up with the demand for electricity Monday, prompting the operator to ask Texans to conserve power until Friday.


    The Electric Reliability Council of Texas said in a statement Monday that a significant number of unexpected power plant outages combined with expected record use of electricity due to hot weather has resulted in tight grid conditions. Approximately 12,000 megawatts of generation were offline Monday, or enough to power 2.4million homes on a hot summer day.


    ERCOT officials said the power plant outages were unexpected — and could not provide details as to what could be causing them.

    the high was 98 degrees in Austin today -- way above normal but hardly unheard of for mid-June.

    12MW of 86MW are offline.

    I hope our grid is secure against cyber attacks and more hot summer days.

    It was horrible in SA as well.
    I saw people strewn along the bike paths in various shaded areas, not at the regular water stops.
    The humidity was the killer here, yesterday and today, combined with the temperature.
    The advantage of biking in the heat is through evaporative cooling if you wear the right stuff and keep watering yourself inside and outside. But with the humidity so high, its does not work nearly as well. Room temp shower felt great though (its probably a little colder than that, the ground has not heated the pipes extensively like Aug, and into Sept.)

    And now they will probably tell people its too hot to exercise and to stay inside with the intolerable temp. outside...?
    Yeah. Thats not cool. EMS friend said they had multiple heat exhaustion calls on the bike paths today, Monday? Glad I was not out.

    Along those lines, I was wondering if our "saving" electricity during the "winter" storm through having our power out almost all the time during peak usage will lower our bills.
