Texas still has about 3900 customers without power.

The folks who can afford it with hybrid grid tied systems were fortunate.

Don't you think after suffering from the freeze without power and seeing their electric bills like adding insult to injury, they just decided to be cut off from the grid?[emoticon]

There should have been a provision in the contract that the customer has to be notified when charges exceed a certain amount and has to agree to continued service at those rates.

I agree even "free market" prices should be capped at 2x or 3x the past 90 day average rates.
Careful what you wish for.

Well I just checked and the power outage map website thingy says 629. Do you really think that’s from the storm almost a month ago?
