During that devastating week in February 2021, the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) and ERCOT artificially set energy prices at the highest price possible because they thought it would incentivize generators to stay online.
That was a massive mistake!
No new generators came online, lives were lost, and $46 billion dollars ($4,600 per TX household) in erroneous energy costs were created that will soon be passed on to ratepayers. Worse, Texas can correct the error, but has chosen not to.

Correct Punitive Energy & Ancillary* Services
Texans should not foot the bill for a state error. TXFEB urges the Texas Legislature to utilize its powers vested in the Texas Utility Code to protect consumers by returning the billions paid in overpriced energy during the 2021 Winter Storm.
TXFEB calls on state officials to investigate the overpricing and “Market Power Abuse” during Winter Storm Uri to hold those involved accountable and seek justice for impacted Texans.
