Atlanta coach and USA Basketball men’s national team assistant coach Lloyd Pierce had a one-day coronavirus scare a few weeks ago and had to stay in his hotel room while the matter was sorted out. The bad news: He missed practice. The good news: He didn’t have to miss a USA Basketball staff call that head coach Gregg Popovich had scheduled for that day, because it would have conflicted with that practice.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) on Monday sued Griddy LLC, arguing the energy provider violated the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act by hiking customers’ bills to cover its own failure to prepare for extreme winter weather. “During times of stability and low demand on the grid, Griddy was able to purchase electricity cheaply and pass those savings to consumers. But instability in the market can expose its customers to enormous risk, resulting in massive losses to consumers,” the lawsuit states. “Despite that very real risk, Griddy’s marketing persistently misled its customers about the nature and extent of this risk and the costs consumers could expect when utilizing Griddy’s services.” The complaint alleges Griddy, which purchases power on an open market instead of generating it, has a history of such behavior, saying it similarly increased rates amid an August 2019 heat wave to as much as $9 per kilowatt hour, the same rate it charged during the February winter … [Read more...] about Texas sues power provider Griddy, alleging deceptive advertising and marketing
The experience in Texas should be a warning to other states: If an energy-abundant, rich state that likes to invest in infrastructure can suffer a significant energy crisis, then it can happen anywhere. Overall, the nation’s infrastructure is weak — with crumbling bridges, sagging power lines and leaky pipes — and Texas serves as the canary in the coal mine that more troubles might be looming. Texas is the world’s third largest natural gas producer and has built more new power plants and transmission line capacity during the past 15 years than most countries did during that time. Yet, it failed. ADVERTISEMENT As a state with significant portions in a semi-arid climate, Texas prepares the grid for the hot afternoons of the summer. But the state experiences arctic fronts more often than Texans care to admit. All told, it was a recipe for failure and it can happen elsewhere. In fact, extreme weather has caused significant blackouts in California because of wildfire … [Read more...] about What happened in Texas is only the beginning
