Petition Leaders in Texas Legislature to Correct Abusive Winter Storm Energy Charges

The Petition

Testimony from the Chair of the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) made it clear that only a bill passed by the Texas legislature and signed by Gov. Greg Abbott would compel the PUCT to correct the egregious energy overbilling that was a result of rules and decisions made by the PUCT and ERCOT (which is controlled by the PUCT). 

We are petitioning Gov. Abbott, Lt. Gov. Patrick, the Texas Legislature, Attorney General Paxton, and the PUCT to:

  1. Reverse the artificially excessive and ancillary charges and correct energy charges to a level that is appropriate to the real cost of generation.
  2. Recognize the impact of price gouging on businesses and consumers as a result of the abusive imposed energy pricing. Texas retail energy providers, consumers and businesses alike are victims of this price gouging, which we petition the Texas Attorney General to investigate and take appropriate action.   
  3. Immediately freeze all pending energy and natural gas transactions, terminations, and penalties from the full week of the imposed high rate cap before they are irreversible to allow legislators time to investigate and take appropriate actions.
