A Brief History of Power for Texans

During the past decade (including early 2011 and the great power outage of February 2021 leaving over 4.3 million people without power). Texans have endured more than it's fair share of power outages. Fundamental differences for Texans include that our power grid is largely separate from the rest of the country. 

Firstly, the state generates its own electricity and really doesn't take part in trading energy with neighboring states. This was done to avoid being subject to the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Secondly, being independent has mostly worked out for Texans. This is due to rich energy reserves of both the hydrocarbon variety and wind or solar generation.

Thirdly, and most importantly, due to population increases and a straining infrastructure, these systems have come under increasing electrical demand. Add to that poor planning leading to more catastrophic power failures with no end in sight.

More Outages and Rate Hikes Coming for Texans

It only makes sense with more demand and less supply that two things will be happening in our great Texan future. More power outages and higher prices per kilo watt hour leading to possible budget strains for your home or business. Add to that a strong possibility of getting caught in the dark with no power. This gives way to hypothermia for you and your family members.
