    As I understand it from the distance of Canada, the primary sources of power in Texas are natural gas, coal, and one nuke. Green energy only made of 7% of the mix.

  2. John Oneill Says:

    Wind is back up to forty percent of the mix today, the largest contributor. It was down in the low single digits during the rolling blackouts. Gas is now making a third, and nuclear and coal each around twelve percent.
    Texas has four nukes. One had a stoppage, for about a day, caused by the freeze.
