    Junk filter thread, tbh.
    ~700 people died last time we had "rolling blackouts"

    maybe it's time to connect to the national grid to protect lives and businesses.

    According to ERCOT, about 75% of that unavailable power comes from “thermal” generators, typically gas and coal plants and nuclear plants, being offline.

    fingers crossed, glad I did all my laundry over the weekend

    In the media call, Lasher repeatedly said he did not have information “available” on which plants were offline and why. ERCOT often does not share some of that data, saying it could violate the compe ive secrets of power plant owners.


    Lasher also said he would not “speculate” on the question of whether market manipulation may be to blame. ERCOT’s independent market monitor is charged with investigating fraud on the grid.


    When supply and demand for electricity fall out of balance, the electric grid runs the risk of completely failing. In that scenario, hardware essential to the generation and transmission of electricity breaks down and the entire grid goes dark.


    ERCOT officials have said re-energizing the state after such a collapse could take weeks. That is one reason they resort to planned blackouts to restore balance on the grid, viewing it as preferable to what they often refer to as "catastrophic failure" of the grid.

    funny, I thought one of the main reasons we have a government was so that everything doesn't have to be a war of all against all.

    I never go under 78F for AC. Fans cost basically nothing to run if I need to feel cooler.

    "Yes well it started like that.
    But now its a way to control us.
    Like suggesting we get magnetic vaccines put in our bodies so refrigerators stick to our head.
    They are out to fool us and use us."

    That card has folded edges and is well worn imo, it can be easily detected in the deck.

    Would only work if Trump was still in office. Using it now says Biden allowed it. We know the nation is secure now.
