TEXAS, USA — Amid the winter storm that swept across Texas in mid-February, energy rates skyrocketed as millions sat without power for days on end.
While Gov. Abbott and other Texas officials say they are working on correcting this issue with ERCOT, many Texans are seeing large bills roll in.
The Public Utility Commission has already ordered energy companies not to send out any bill estimates or invoices while the investigation is underway.
While it is unclear at this time what officials will be able to do about the price hikes, the AG's website says OPC provides representation to residential and small commercial consumers.
