1) they do not winterize and go as far as having a *_stand alone grid to evade federal regulations_* (no one else does that if they CAN connect to a larger grid. Texas and maybe North Korea). 2) no backup from other states or Canada IF their (unprepared) providers fail 3) they fail misearbly 4) when they return to the grid they make up for lost revenue by price gouging. Which is illegal during an emergency btw 3) when it was the worst they lost 40 % of electricity production AND a lot of natural gas for HEATING (pipelines also not winterized) so people TRIED to compensate with electricity 4) when the unprepared providers finally returned to the grid they were able to charge extortion prices, way beyond their production costs. They had no or reduced revenue for a few days, but they can easily make up for that. There is no power from out of state that would solve the scarcity situation (so they could not profit from the scarcity situation THEY crated. Not only have the clients to live with the blackouts, and the damages (frozen pipe situation would have been much better) They pushed flexible pricing (which is not even a thing in other states).

Electricity leans strongly into direction of natural monopoly. Texas chose to have a race to the bottom regarding prices and to evade federal regulation (with the small costs for preparedness that the large energy use do not want) they chose to have a STAND ALONE GRID. It is a closed scene (to avoid the word "market").

I read that during an emergency price gouging is forbidden. Now the hotels might get away with it (the wife of Ted Cruz complained about high hotel prices in Texas, that gave them the idea to flee to Cancun. Cost flyin' Ted likely his 2024 presidential run ;) - but the energy providers are easier to catch, their business model is more standardized. And in the hotels the consumers at least knew the high prices in advance and could make an informed choice, we can assume that only wealthy individuals checked in for 1000 USD per night (I hope that was at least for 2 persons in a double).

providers failed to prepare. Texan politicians wanted a race to the bottome regarding electricity prices. Preparedness was not mandated, it would cut into profits. Worse: some providers have problems with the margins already, they are not going to invest if it is not a level playing field (with mandates). Federal regulations would have avoided the worst, at slightly higher prices. TX politicians want to attract industries that use a lot of energy and those companies (big donors) resent modestly higher prices (that would include the costs for reserves and making the equipment cold / heat proof). They could easily pay, they just do not want to. They pay those prices in all other states and in other nations. And TX politicians wanted those extremely low prices (with cutting corners) as special attraction of Texas (plus MORE big donors ! for them) so they can lure in companies from other states (states that are now supposed to bail them out via federal government). Tx politicians look good, lots of jobs, also jobs in construction. For geographic reasons some nations or regions must have a stand alone grid (separated by deserts, mountain ranges. Or islands) - but a nation or region that can, will connect to a larger grid. Only Texas - or maybe North Korea (If China accepts them, they would gladly cooperate with them, not sure if they are connected). Stand alone grids COST more, they also have to provide for all the reserves for emergencies by themselves (they miss out on the backup of other states). Or one nation or province has a surplus, so it helps with costs if they import and export. The Texas sitution is unique, because they have so much fossil fuels and they have a lot of consumption to match that. So they CAN be cheap despite being a closed "market". Their politicians will also do nothing to promote energy saving. After all their buddies cannot export much - not part of a larger grid - so they NEED high ongoing consumption _IN Texas._ but when they lose so much production they have extreme scarcity. They also do not store oil or gas. They get that from ongoing extraction. Well they had a lot of technical problems with that too because of the unusual cold. Then the providers returned to the grid. Households and companies got power again (sometimes). But the closed "market" had much higher demand than usual. Because of the cold and because they also lost natural gas for heating. No imports from out of state possible - the prices would be slightly higher but no extortion prices, the Southwest grid is large and includes Canada, some providers have reserves - 'cause federal regulations - and would gladly activate them for a reasonable price. If in a large net all keep _some_ reserves and can deliver the resources (power, food, staff....) in an emergency to the other participants than all participants can make do with less reserves and can still have a high level of resilience - compared to when they are on their own in an emergency. Some consumers have those "flexible" plans where the consumer prices are tied to the auction wholesale prices. Consumption is very differently throughout the season in Texas, normally it is the highest in summer. I guess it made sense for some consumers and no doubt was skillfully marketed. The wholesale auction prices rose to extrem levels because of the scarcity - because of an epic failure of political and industrial leadership.

They had extreme scarcity because they lost 40 % of electricity production (when it was the worst) and also the natural gas for heating, so demand for electricity shot up even more. - To avoid federal regulation (incl. the demand to winterize) Texas has a Stand Alone Grid. That means they do not export or import much form other states (if they do that they would be part of the grid and subject to regulation.) That means they do not have the infrastruture to get a lot of electricity from out of state in case of an emergency, they do not have the powerlines, never mind the legalities (maybe those could be overcome by emergency orders - of big bad federal government. but not lack of infrastructure) Normally Texas can produce the electricity they need. And some consumers opted for the flexible plans. They have higher prices in summer when electricity demand goes up, so consumers can save costs if they reduce consumption then. or they leave during summer and live there in the cooler seasons.

btw price gouging during an emergency is illegal and Biden already ! declared an emergency on Feb. 14. The White House did listen to the weather forecast I am not sure Texans were duly warned by their state government. - these flexible plans are likely tied to the wholesale auctions / industry prices. And since Texas is not on the large grid and they allowed that emergency situation to happen - prices shot up in the auctions because of the scarcity.

the politicians and providers did not prepare. When the cold front hit them (punctually after 10 years) the providers failed miserably. Again ! This time it was worse than in 2011. At the height of the crisis they lost 40 % of electricity production AND have also failed to winterize the natural gas pipelines. They are not in the frost free zone (cutting corners for construction costs, once in 30 or more years lifetime) so instruments, controls fail, water condensates IN the gas and causes problems. They do not have enough natural gas storage anyway for emergencies even IF the technology would be cold proof. Storage / reserves costs money. NO gas for heating, so even MORE demand for electricity. When the providers returned to the grid, to do their job, they asked for extortion prices. In this closed off market (not on the larger grid to evade reasonble federal regulation) they have auctions for electricity and in that situation prices shot up. And they could not import a lot. They (politicians likely on behalf of their big donors) arranged for Texas to be a closed market - I think 20 years ago or even longer In order to be on the large national grid they would need to accept federal regulations that would mandate to prepare for extreme events (cold, heat, hurricanes) and likely to have some reserves. Maybe also some consumer protection. A Tx governor not so long ago sued the EPA to avoid having to winterize. (the very thing that could have avoided the worst now). Refusing to abide by common sense regulation meant also no access to the large grid - so no backup form the other Southwestern states and Canada. In their Stand Alone Grid they do not routinely export and import a lot of electricity - so they do not have the infrastructure to import a lot in an emergency. Since electricity had become a scarce resource in that small "market" hit by a cold snap they neglected to prepare for - the providers demand extortion prices if and when they can do their job (again). Why ? Because they can- and way beyond costs of production. So they missed out on revenue for a few days, but they can make up for that. And they never had to invest the money to avoid most of the problems in the first place. They pushed for flexible tariffs. And allowed for contracts w/o caps. such contracts seem to be reasonable. If Texans reduce A/C use when demand is high they can save costs. Of course they can also save costs if the kwH is slightly more expensive (costs of peparedness added) and that motivates them to consume less electricity. Not only to delay use, but to cut it out. On the other hand much more could be saved if the state would mandate other building codes (they should have 30 years ago, would save a lot of energy for A/C in summer, and would have helped now). But the providers and politicians do not want that: Texas can only run the Stand Alone Grid * at low prices because it has so much energy, but it also needs a lot of consumption (squandering). The providers cannot export (not part of the larger grid) - so they want to sell a lot in Texas. They cannot grow into another region if Texans would become more energy efficient. The less energy you need to function the more resilient the system is. so that whole racket gives incentives in the wrong direction. * New Zealand or Iceland or the islands of Hawaii also have a Stand Alone Grid, they can't help it as islands. But they would connect to a grid if they could. No nation or region cuts itself off from a larger grid. Only Texas - not sure about North Korea, but if the Chinese will have them they will gladly join up ! and likely it costs the islands more because they have to provide the emergency reserves all by themselves.

providers cause the scarcity. They do not prepare, the government even has cut off Texas from much larger grids (potential backup !! for emergencies) to evade federal regulation, that would have forced them to prepare. Providers likely lobbied for that state of affairs. Then they fail miserably in a predictable event. 1989 / 2011 * / 2021 winter strom and cold snap of Feb. 2011 was bad, but the federal commission could only give recommendations, not force Texas to upgrade. And now 2021. some warning shots **, highly unusual cold snaps. Predictions of Climate scientists that such events will happen more often. ** Florida and parts of the Arctic had the same temperature for 1 - 2 days. Around freezing point. During the Arctic WINTER. When it should have - 22 F and not + 32 F (- 30 C and not 0). That cold snap did not last long and it was not that cold so it did not do much damage in Florida. THEN. I took notice. The politicians in the Southern states should have taken notice.

Under no circumstances should the federal government bail out the energy price gougers, market manipulators, and disaster profiteers in the Texas energy market. It is evident that Wall Street/Houston energy traders exploited this disaster to extort money from the people of Texas and country. Screw those weasels!
