Rich as Policy Advisor to PUCT Commissioner's warned Abbott in 2015 about grid reliability issues that caused the failure last year.
Balanced mix of thermal and renewable generation coupled with regular operational testing of the grid and thermal generating units is necessary to ensure reliability. Abbott ignored written warnings provided to him in March 2015 regarding the reliability of the ERCOT grid while I was policy advisor to Commission Ken Anderson, Jr. of the PUC. Abbott was provided a roadmap of how to increase the grid reliability while simultaneously increasing renewable energy production. Instead he chose a course that six years later caused the collapse of the ERCOT grid.
High tech is the white collar middle class central nervous system of Texas. Continue a positive business environment for the Texas high tech industry.
The 2011 drought will repeat itself and Abbott has not prepared to combat the coming drought, just like he ignored the electric grid. Push through legislation allowing for cash crops.
Texas power needs, which are the largest in the United States, require diverse sourcing. This includes both emerging sources like wind and solar power, and legacy sources such as natural gas and oil. These both secure our industrial output and jobs for the millions of Texans that supply and depend on power.
Since Abbott took office, we've lost without replacement over 3,000 MW of legacy power plants. He was warned this would happen and that grid reliability was in jeopardy. He did nothing.
Texas is in competition with all the other states and many foreign countries to attract new businesses and retain existing ones. I believe in giving credit when due. The early Abbott and his predecessors and the predecessors to the current Republican led legislature deserve credit for growing the Texas economy.

Electric car extension cord section. Not going to wait on the Federal govt. That is like a turtle walking backwards. Will not refuse money provided from them, but they will have to keep up with us because we are going to advance continuously.

A border wall is an ineffective, counterproductive and costly method of immigration control. We must not rely on the Federal Government to take action. We must provide our own approach to limiting undocumented immigration. Select learn more to see my approach for statewide immigration reform.
