Some Texas residents are reporting huge power bills following the deadly winter storm that swept through the state earlier this month. Dallas resident and US Army veteran Scott Willoughby spoke with the New York Times and said he had a $16,000 bill for power services which ate up his savings. Texas has an independent energy grid system, which means that when the storm hit and the supply of power was low, the state was unable to receive support from other states. This resulted in the rise of energy prices and thousands in bills for some. The mayor of Houston said the state should be responsible for paying these bills.
