The Choose Energy survey was conducted by Dynata.

More than half of Texans blame the Electric Reliability Council of Texas for massive outages that caused millions of residents to lose power during the Valentine’s Day weekend storm, according to a survey conducted for Choose Energy by Dynata.

The survey, administered March 4-6, asked 521 Texans questions about the state’s response to the storm, its deregulated energy marketplace, and more. A key question: Where do you point the finger for the power outages as they relate to the storm? Nearly 58 percent of respondents blamed ERCOT for the situation that created “rolling outages” throughout the storm. ERCOT manages the power grid for about 90 percent of the state’s customers.
