Texas Electric Board Members Resign After Grid Failure
Five members of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas are resigning.
Last week’s deadly winter freeze in Texas caused more than 4 million customers to lose power, with many blaming the failure on the electricity grid’s leaders.
All board members resigning live outside of Texas, a fact that intensified criticism against them.
The resignations come a day before Texas lawmakers begin hearings at the state Capitol over the power outages.
