In February 2021, millions of Texans were left in the dark. We suffered tremendous physical, emotional, and financial damage because of the choices made by the Public Utility Commission (PUC) and Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). 

During that devastating week, the PUC and ERCOT decided to set energy prices at the highest price possible because they thought it would incentivize generators to stay online.

That was a massive mistake. No new generators came online, and lives were lost.

Now, state leaders plan to pass the costs on to ratepayers and taxpayers by raising their energy costs significantly for years to come. The current bill of about $50 billion in artificially increased costs breaks down to a few thousand dollars per Texas household on the ERCOT grid for that one week alone, a price tag that the majority of Texans cannot afford.

The Texas Legislature has the power to protect consumers, but they're only in session for a few more weeks. We must tell them to put consumers first.

We are calling on Texas leaders to: 

  1. Prevent over-inflated energy costs from being passed on to Texas Rate Payers.
  2. Investigate the actions of energy regulators during the February 2021 Winter Storm. 
     

Act now to tell our leaders to put Texans first. Protect consumers from inflated energy bills.
