The Power Grid
Texas was once proud of its independent electrical grid. That is until bureaucrats and special interests got their hands on it in the greediest taxpayer cash grab in recent history. During the massive winter storm in early 2021, 1/2 of Texas’ wind turbines went offline because they froze. Their share of electrical output went from 42 percent to 8 percent in a matter of hours. Four million Texas families went without power and heat for days in dangerous weather conditions resulting in economic damage measured in billions of dollars and 150 deaths.
This is unacceptable and leadership in Austin needs to be held accountable for the crisis they created.
