Insurer Refuses To Defend ERCOT From Texas Winter Storm Lawsuits
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas could be left to pay for the legal defense and damages resulting from more than a dozen lawsuits filed against the state’s power grid manager following the February storm.
The storm left more than 4.5 million Texans without power.
The storm is blamed for the deaths of 125 people across the state, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. The majority of the deaths resulted from hypothermia, the state says.
Within days of the storm, stories of Texans freezing to death began showing up across the state.
