[Newt? weren't all those shut-downs a pretense to force gov. gray to make a deal w/enron so CA could avoid more costly rates?]

California was just fine until deregulation and privatization in 96.

Since then, it’s gone to shit, culminating in almost zero maintenance that caused billions in wildfire damages, more outages, and much higher prices. We even had Enron here, they deliberately shut down plants at peak demand time to artificially raise prices repeatedly.
Are you under some delusion that California doesn’t have private electricity companies? Look up PCG on the nyse. Lol! Privatization CAUSED all the problems we have today. Derp.

🤦‍♂️

should heed newt on that tangled.

that's the straight dope.

they had folks on tape talking about how they shut down power to the state. they laughed about it.

seriously, it might open yer eyes. if anything, you could read how a DEMOCRAT governor got recalled and was replaced by a REPUBLICAN!!!... due to the evilness of Enron.

so at least, there is an *eye-roll* a happy ending /s.

When the Democrats take over Texas they can run its power just like California's because everyone knows California never has power problems, lol!

Nah.... only things Republicans will take a good look at are progressive scapegoats, i.e. renewable, non-polluting energy!

To be fair, it IS a hard ask for the average Texans to be prepared for these type of event. but for the energy companies? That's a wholly different logic. At the very least, it's absolutely stupid (and arrogant) is isolate themselves from the neighboring power grid that Texans can't even buy power (or in very limited amount?) from neighboring states for emergencies.

Actually, the real problem in Texas is their always race to the bottom-line dollars, regulation be damn -- yeehaw! -- mentality. No other countries, or even most States in the USA, would be so dumb.

So many houses are going to be total losses. With any luck insurance will cover most, but my guess is there are going to be a TON of individuals left holding the bag.
