Texas's Day Of Reckoning Is Why Everyone Should Be A Prepper: Imagine A $10,000 To $17,000 Electric Bill While Scraping Snow Off Your Walls Just To Have Drinking Water Empty store shelves, water shortages, freezing weather with no electricity, and as Texas officials work to get the electric grid back, electric bills have surged between $10,000 and $17,000 and people are having to scrape ice off their walls to boil for clean water. While individual residents have no control over the actual electric grid itself, nor the new green energy (wind turbines) utterly failing, and while we would never "victim blame," we can and will use this as an example of why people need to prepare, prepare, and prepare for every eventuality they are capable of preparing for. It doesn't have to be the end of civilization, or a doomsday scenario, or a terrorist attack or any other of the dozen possibilities that could require people to survive in the most dire of conditions. With nothing more than a weather event knocking out overtaxed electrical grids and the supposed "clean energy" systems which proved to be huge failures, we see a real life, present day example of why everyone needs to become a prepper. PIKING ELECTRIC BILLS NBC News headlines "As Texas deep freeze subsides, some households now face electricity bills as high as $10,000," while Daily Mail claims that number if far higher, and some are seeing their electric bills surge to $17,000. Texans have seen electric bills surge as high as $17,000 after two powerful storms knocked out power and caused a 300-fold surge in demand - as 14million people struggle to get clean water in a 'health catastrophe'. While most Texans are on a fixed rate plan on which they pay the same monthly amount throughout the duration of their contract, some are on a variable or indexed plan which sees rates vary based on the market. One of these customers, Ty Williams, told WFAA-TV that his combined electric bill last month for his home, guest house, and office was $660. As of this month, he owes more than $17,000. ‘How in the world can anyone pay that?’ Williams asked. As demand rises, so does the rate at which consumers are billed, which is causing these insane fluctuations in prices skyrocketing. A generator or two, along with some space heaters, and even gas for the generators that are not solar, would cost far less, and quite literally pay for themselves in savings in far less than a month. That would allow consumers to shut down all electricity in their homes and use their generators until these spikes in electricity bills taper off, because the last things these poor people suffering through this brutal and deadly winter, need, is higher utility bills. Many of them actually have to fix up their homes from the extreme damage seen from the massive amounts of snow.
