Statement from J.P. Urban, Senior Vice President & Acting CEO,
Association of Electric Companies of Texas,
regarding winter storm outages in Texas
February 18, 2021
This unprecedented and ongoing winter storm has affected every part of the electric system, and our member companies are working around the clock to restore power. Significant generation is back online, but we’re not out of the woods yet.
We urge all consumers with power to conserve energy, helping us restore power more widely as we bring electricity back online. As we overcome these weather challenges together, we will work with all stakeholders to fully understand all the causes of the outages, which have impacted so many Texans.
