What Caused the Electric Crisis in Texas that Left Millions Without Power in February?
There were several factors that led to the power crisis in Texas in February of 2021. Despite the claims by some politicians that certain energy industries were responsible for the massive loss of power, the real reason lies in the unique design of the Texas power grid. At the time of the power crisis, the Texas grid was not connected to the much larger federal array, meaning it could not supplement its grid when there was a power shortage. Because the Texas system had no backup grids connected, millions of people lost power. Furthermore, the Texas power system’s pipelines, windmills, and other sources of energy were not properly winterized before the storms, which effectively slowed down or disabled many of the alternate sources of energy for the grid.
