Brutal Cold grips central United States

Temperatures have dropped more than 40° below the average.

Power costs have soared from $4 / MWh to over $600 / MWh.

Most of the news we are seeing is coming from Texas for several reasons:

  1. Well, it is really cold; well below freezing for nearly 5 days.
  2. Texas is a power island. They have no connections outside of Texas so, other states cannot supply power for them.
  3. Texas’ energy infrastructure is not built for freezing temperatures. This results in water main breaks, gas pipes freezing, and power equipment not operating properly.

Outside of Texas the Polar Vortex will have economic impact but, electricity and gas are generally staying on.

If your power or heat is interrupted, CALL your local utility.

How Extreme Cold Turned Into a U.S. Energy Crisis

Over the past several days, extraordinary cold weather in the US from a polar vortex caused record temperatures across the country. Electricity and heating fuel costs skyrocketed while energy demand hit record levels. Millions of customers dealt with blackouts for the first time in a decade. Gas lines seized, wind turbines froze, and oil wells shut in. Across the grid in Texas, all energy sources had problems with some reasons still unknown. Texas’s emergency state will allow for more resources to become available and ensure residences, medical facilities, and related consumers are the priority to receive fuel first. The energy market in Texas is one of the most competitive in the US and power providers have to be prepared for extreme events such as this one. If not, they are set up for failure. Texas and Washington policy makers may need to review their system and make some changes to ensure a similar crisis is prevented or handled better.

Tech giants are becoming green energy barons

Tech company advancements have increased dramatically, especially over the past year. With this progress, we have seen a rise in carbon emissions due to the thousands of devices these businesses use each day. Some centers are using enough to power 80,000 US homes. “The Financial Times (FT) stated that the combined power usage of Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Apple is more than 45 terawatt-hours a year, about as much as New Zealand”. To offset these numbers, tech giants have focused on developments such as wind and solar installations while also agreeing to clean energy deals. This has caused the corporate market for purchasing clean energy to grow exponentially and indicates we will see further growth continuously in the market.
