What can be done to prevent power outages due to snow in the future?
Use this space to take notes, keep track of your sources, or conversations you have with people about this project.
-power outages have partially been blamed on heavy reliance on solar and wind power which cannot perform in the snow well -10% of all power in Texas is wind and solar -freezing temperatures have also made it harder to extract natural gas from the ground -national standards being considered to protect gas generators from getting impacted by cold temperatures -in northern states generators are inside rather than outside to protect against cold weather but Texas normally has generators outdoors to assist with ac cooling in the summer
