    When I took some power systems engineering grad courses to make sure no GI Bill went unspent. My take-a-way from that was a nation wade grid controlled by politicians is a very scarey proposition. Politicians and PUCs control system safety by allowing or not whenever maintance or improvements (including safety improvements) the private power companies wanr to do. There is no incentive for them to not make safety improvements but they are legitimate expenses when it comes ot calculating profit. Example: In California, among the reasons for very high rates we suffer from are the expenses that renewables imposed on the system. Renewables are very expensive when the necessary additional system expenses are included. In order to prevent some of that cost from getting to the rates, the power companies couldn't get approval for safety and maintaince expenses enough to prevent wires from starting wildfires. Of course the California pols then blamed the evil power companies for inadequate maintaince in the knowledge that 99% won't think past "evil capitalism" to realize the PUC controlled the safety spending. When I heard Obama's high flying rhetoric about savings from a "smart grid" I heard it as "dangerous grid" that he hoped wouldn't cause disaster on his watch.

    Imo Texas would not have had such a bad outage if it's power grid was interconnected with the rest of the US and other power plants could of diverted power to help Texas keep the lights on for millions while they fixed the problem instead of having people freeze to death in record breaking cold but of course Texas Republicans blamed the power companies and fined them huge money instead of their own corrupt selves for opting out of the interconnected power grid which would of helped Texas tremendously in this situation.

    This is a bureaucratic failure and Texas fell like dominos. The wind & solar provide about 21% of electricity and are intermittent at best. During the storm, the solar panels were covered with ice and the wind generators froze. At the same time, demand rose beyond the capability of what was left, so they had to cut power to balance the grid. Now, for the dominos and classic failure of bureaucracy. When they shut down portions of the grid, they shut down the power to the natural gas production facilities. Without power, the natural gas production facilities could not maintain pressure on the natural gas lines, and when the pressure dropped, the natural gas generator plants went offline. Now, most of the state was without power. I would have expected the grid managers to have knowledge of critical infrastructure. ERCOT didn't know that information about the gas production facilities.
