Texas Energy Blame Game

The state government in Texas is trying to blame renewables for their failures in the Big Freeze. I won’t even say it was gas that was the problem. Just failure to winterize the system, which was heavily gas based. Not widely discussed, but lack of gas from Texas also left millions in Mexico without power. Hard to blame that on renewables.

A good read on the subject that quotes a former ERCOT member:

“They would have to be complete idiots if they think what they’re doing is solving the problem,” he said. He doesn’t actually think elected officials are idiots, he added, but he does think they are acting out of political convenience.

Texas Politicians Aim to Penalize Wind and Solar in Response to Outages. Are Renewables Now Strong Enough to Defend Themselves?
