It is ridiculous that the energy capital of America (Texas) cannot supply the necessary electricity for Texas citizens. Ercot is in the backpocket of the fossil fuel industry and after the multibillion dollar castastrophe of 2021 the only thing that happened was Texas government basically did nothing but tried to blame solar and wind for the problem which was BS.

The only reason that Texas has a totally separate grid is because they do not want the Feds to be able to regulate them - Welcome to Texas, which is becoming a shithole thanks to GOP leadership for the last 30 years.
