The people that run the power grid that failed miserably, yes.


Wind, even with the icing issues that could have been prevented, we’re producing more than was expected during the failure.

The privatization, lack of oversight, and inability to access power from other states created the perfect storm.

I have mentioned before that I prefer newer nuclear technology to wind. All sources of E have trade offs. Renewables weren’t the reason Texas went dark.
