Default Dallas rolling black outs

My neighborhood is not even 1/2 complete and county is threatening rolling blackout.
how do I get the new homes stopped from being built? Obviously Dallas can’t handle what they have so why build more? The electric companies can’t handle, why continue adding to the problem?

Don't worry. Green energy will solve that.

I think all the people who moved from CA to TX were feeling homesick so the utility decide to do something about it.

The boys and girls wanted wind and solar in TX ...

They really should be happy even if wind and solar take a dump for a couple of days during record cold. Austin grid relies on wind for about 20%...

From what I've seen on the news Dallas got a lot of ice. No power system can withstand that..... Has nothing to do with how many houses in the neighborhood.

Your not going to stop it, there is money to be made by the developer and the county by larger tax base. This is your solution to the problem

WTF does TN have to do with the fact TX can't manage its own power grid?

I would think you setting up at the front of the hood and introducing yourself would slow growth tremendously.

No kidding. True blue buffoon. His neighborhood is "1/2 complete" and since he's moved in all further construction should end. What a complete tool.

Yep. I bet the family that lived next door to that property for the previous 20 years is wishing that entire neighborhood would never have been built.

You could always go out to your electric car and drive some place warmer.

That is what I have been saying all along. How the hell are they gonna handle the demand when the grid can't handle what we have now?

Simple. "They" will just stop building half the neighborhoods; then, the buffoon boys can generate all the power needed with all the hot air from all their collective whining.

ITT: “Wye won’t the government help me?!?”

If they engineered for once in a lifetime events your thread would read “Why did they triple the costs of our damn power...”

I checked, it was 8 degrees earlier today in the big D! A projected high in the mid teens.

Remember when oil went -$35 a barrel last year? When AOC said "You gotta love that"?? Did the energy industry can ANY help/sympathy? No they were the laughing stock of America.

Well they tried storing oil and nat gases in all storage venues including filing the 'pipelines'. The very same pipelines the enviors are railing against. Wait and see those same shrill simpletons will be screeching "BIG OIL" soon. Congressional hearings on why energy prices are so high. I kid you not. The EXACT same people who laughed will now be holding everyone in the world (you and me) responsible. Except themselves!! Can you say al gore

Some tools are useful and have good qualities. Some don't.
