    Texas power generation companies will have to better prepare for extreme weather under bills Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law

    Senate Bills 2 and 3 are aimed at overhauling the state’s power grid after the devastating winter storm in February and the widespread power outages that followed.

    June 16, 2021 (Reuters) - Searing heat across the U.S. Southwest and soaring electricity demand for air conditioners this week are prompting grid operators in Texas and California to warn consumers about energy conservation to avoid outages.

    And Greg Abbott is wanting to build the wall in Texas..talk about about pandering..I guess he's trying to shore up the trumpers in case Mathew mcconahay runs.
    Those south tx ranchers that don't want the wall will have that shit tied up in court for years

    Are they gonna check if you are running the a.c. and start fining people?

    If someone were to ever come to my door with that bullshit, they won't be met with any compliance of energy conservation.

    Nothing official, only rumors thankfully. With the increase of electric usage and decrease in coal and oil to make the electric, there will surely be a breaking point.

    The ranch owners along the boarder I know would welcome the wall. They are tired of repairing their fence lines and having things stolen from their barns and took sheds.

    This is basic management of the state. The Governor and Legislature should all be recalled for failure to perform their basic responsibilities.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.
