Texas power grid is separate from rest of country: Would state-owned power grids work in other states?

  • Yes, state-owned power grids would work in other states.

    The nationwide energy power grid is continuing to grow as well as has significantly revolutionized the way we utilize energy. The U .S . electrical power electrical grid was created to deal with naturally occurring as well as non-natural unfortunate occurrences. State-owned power grids would help the advancement of the nationwide energy power grid.

  • State-owned power grids probably a good idea

    The more connected large regions of the country are, the more vulnerable people become. Whether it is a deliberate attack or accident, a catastrophe could affect scores of people. State-owned power grids would lesson the impact of a single event and allow states to pursue their own regulations for maintaining the grids.

  • Yes, state-owned power grids would enable faster assistance during blackouts.

    During a blackout, it often takes several hours for the power to come back on, sometimes even days. This is due to the fact that the companies servicing the power grids are often not able to respond immediately, and may have some distance to travel in order to repair the lines in question.

  • I'm not sure

    They might work in certain states, but maybe not in all. I'm not sure how size, land conditions etc would play into that as well. I think people would be more amenable to state-owned power grids if they still have other options. If the state is in control of all the power, I doubt most people would be ok with that.

  • Why separate the Country?

    I am surprised Texas isn't a country of its own. I perhaps should keep the joke low, but, if the power goes out in Texas, then it would only be Texas. It beings the thought to know, that even though this state has been dubbed as the Lone Star State, it's name originated from "Tejas", which means 'friends' in the Caddo language.
    A universal grid could benefit as much as or better than a single state's grid. Surely each state has safety measures to safeguard in the event of a mishap or natural disaster. The safety measures would help to minimize the damage to the lease of it's ability. The responders can be just as good as locating and adequately rectifying the problem to a situation. Come to think of it, more responders could be allocated to help out a situation if the problem is determined to be greater than normal. More resources such as people ,money, and supplies could be allocated to assist in time of great need, and at a faster rate too.
    If there is a universal grid, then there is the possibility to share power. At a time when demand is at peak, and energy is of the essence, a neighbor state or city could supply power and help to maintain a steady flow.
    And the price, you might think that with each state having their own grid it would open the holy doors for competition. But, you are wrong, states need not to compete when they already own the grid in the vanity. They would instead price-match or raise prices because the other state makes more money than they do. A unified grid would not only be regulated on a state level but on a federal level as it is, like food, shelter, and water, now in this modern time considered a necessity.
    According to the information of Wallethud Jun 23,2016, you can find the cheapest electricity bill in Washington, Forbes website 2010, states that even though Texas had a great access to oil refineries, cities' electricity prices inside Texas varied by a significant handful during the past recession.
