    Default About the power situation in Texas

    You can make more power as long as you pay the penalties for emissions and then you can only make more power exactly when it's needed and not before, then you have to cut it off immediately when we say so.

    your Acceptance
    nor your Permission.

    I understand there are other ways to get Heated.

    Thank goodness Texas forgot the lesson learned during the exact same disaster ten years ago and ignored a 300 page report by its own energy regulatory agency on how to prevent it again in the future. Otherwise Rocktar and the Texas Republicans who mismanaged the crisis wouldn't have an opportunity to blame the Biden administration. I mean, surely an authorization they asked for being granted is surely reason to lay blame elsewhere. Absolutely the 4,000 mw/h they wanted to import would have completely averted the loss of 40,000 mw/h in generation capacity which was lost because of their own incompetence.

    Cursed Democrat's and the interference with state affairs!

    Here is the request from ERCOT, which the Department of Energy granted verbatim. Again, pesky Democrats for meddling in Texan affairs by granting requests!

    One of the joys of a regional power grid.

    Wait so being part of a regional power grid isn't a cure all that ensures people never lose power?
