The organization responsible for managing the flow of electricity from producers to 26 million Texas customers removed the names of its board members from its website. The removal follows threats against the leadership of the organization.
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) removed the names of its Board of Directors from its website, according to a report from KTRK ABC13 in Houston. A spokesman for the group said the removal is due to threats being received from board members and senior leadership.
KTRK reported ERCOT removed the names and replaced them with the term, “Vacant.” Officials responded and said no one has resigned from the organization. They just took the names down because of threats over the anger about widespread long-lasting power outages during the historic winter storm.
At the peak, more than 4 million Texans lost electricity during the storm. Some outages lasted for days. According to PowerOutage.us,
