ERCOT Board Members Resign Before Investigation


AUSTIN, TX – Several board members of the Electric Reliability Council Of Texas (ERCOT) will resign on Wednesday in the wake of the total failure of the council to prevent the statewide collapse of the electric grid during the horrific winter storm. 

Governor Greg Abbott Tuesday issued a statement on the resignation of the Electric Reliability Council Of Texas (ERCOT) board members, including the chairman and vice-chairman:

“When Texans were in desperate need of electricity, ERCOT failed to do its job and Texans were left shivering in their homes without power. ERCOT leadership made assurances that Texas’ power infrastructure was prepared for the winter storm, but those assurances proved to be devastatingly false. The lack of preparedness and transparency at ERCOT is unacceptable, and I welcome these resignations. The State of Texas will continue to investigate ERCOT and uncover the full picture of what went wrong, and we will ensure that the disastrous events of last week are never repeated.”

More details of the resignations will be made public Wednesday.

I agree, but the republican terrorists who run this state will never allow that to happen.
