    “The 2000–01 California electricity crisis, also known as the Western U.S. energy crisis of 2000 and 2001, was a situation in which the U.S. state of California had a shortage of electricity supply caused by market manipulations…”

    A single generator can easily power essentials of 3 homes

    • Esteban Samaniego Reply

      I’m getting a generator, I didn’t know that.

    • Burt Hulbert Reply

      @Esteban Samaniego if you plan on assisting 2 additional homes something just under 5,000 watts will do. You can’t all run electric coffee makers or toasters at once but refrigerators and a couple lights yes. If you’re only running your house a 2k watt “suitcase” type is best as they can run on “eco” mode very efficiently

    • Esteban Samaniego Reply

      @Burt Hulbert thanks for the info

    Rich daddy helping the poor, why does rich daddy have all the power?

  24. Here There Everywhere Reply

    I am a fire protection design engineer & gov contractor. The only way fire sprinklers can operate under freezing conditions is to use dry sprinklers. We don’t install dry sprinklers in an area that doesn’t get that cold because it is more costly. With wet sprinklers, water doesn’t only freeze in the pipe but it also freezes right before it is sprayed from the sprinkler. In this case Texas will have to redesign the sprinkler system for every school & hospital for freezing temperatures or they are in really big trouble! So even tho next winter they fix power problems and insulate pipes (or bury cold water pipes deeper) for water pressure, people may still die from unstoppable fires.

    NBC MSNBC and CNN should give 50% of their wealth and assets two African Americans for slavery reparations and if not they are racist

  26. Ret Army Combat Vet Reply

    This February 2021, Texas has just proven how unreliable Wind and Solar power can be. All of the cities in Texas that failed are ruled by progressive democrat mayors that change the power grid and power sources to green energy that completely and utterly failed. I live in a town in Texas that relied on natural gas and fossil fuel for power, we have electricity, water, and food. My town did not suffer any problems at all and our town is not the only one. We even donated electrical power, water, and food to the cities that failed. This has nothing to do with climate change, This is not even the worst of Texas weathers (just researched the weather history of Texas) This type of weather happens in Texas every decade or two and Texas weathered them all in the past. The only difference this time is that the cities that got hit bad relied mostly on wind and solar for power. I live in Texas all my life and I’m old. Texas needs to go back to being Texas.

    Wow!!! These people who are helping people and I take my hat off to them!!!

  28. HilarityBribo Reply

    Texans are strong.
    Even though the libidiots’ wind turbines failed, we pulled through.
    President Trump was right again. Time to get back to reliable energy.
