CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi’s Mayor Paulette Guajardo and 15 other mayors throughout the state of Texas have signed a letter to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), urging for cooperation between ERCOT, state leaders, and local leaders to investigate the policies and protocols of the council that left millions of Texans in the dark during historic freezing conditions.
“ERCOT’s processes and protocols need a full public airing as well as action from state leadership that will prevent this type of disaster in the future...we offer our cooperation to find meaningful solutions,” said the letter signed by the 16 mayors.
