Our new President promises to fix all this with his Green New Deal. Won't have to worry about off line generators with Wind Mills and Solar Panels providing uninterrupted power. Yea right. mad

We can't depend on them.
Each individual home needs emergency power storage capabilities.

And power outage, just while cooking
chicken tenders and fries.

Texas has it's own power grid that is separate from the feds. ERCOT, I believe it's called.

with any other catchy phrases...

KRLD reported several power stations offline, some due to icing of wind turbines. Icing on wind turbines. Awesome

My wife called oncor earlier today and they told her it was a power outage and NOT rolling blackouts. Even though the power had gone off and on 6 times by then and continues now, up to 10 now.

I do feel somewhat fortunate that I have had some power today as there are several that haven’t had any

Yep. https://amp.statesman.com/amp/4483230001



"Nearly half of Texas' installed wind power generation capacity has been offline because of frozen wind turbines in West Texas, according to Texas grid operators.

Wind farms across the state generate up to a combined 25,100 megawatts of energy. But unusually moist winter conditions in West Texas brought on by the weekend's freezing rain and historically low temperatures have iced many of those wind turbines to a halt.

As of Sunday morning, those iced turbines comprise 12,000 megawatts of Texas' installed wind generation capacity, although those West Texas turbines don't typically spin to their full generation capacity this time of year.

Texas power outages: Rolling blackouts possible amid record demand for energy"

Some entities have not planned correctly, methinks . . . .

Why are the coal-fired generating plants offline ? ? ? Could they not be held in standby ? ? ?

Just thinkin' . . . .
