The newly launched guide covers how quickly energy rates are rising. It highlights that, according numerous official sources, the energy grid is under more strain because of the February winter storms.
According to CNN, Texas energy rates rose by 10,000% following the cold spell. In addition to this, there are a range of other negative impacts. Numerous homeowners went 24 hours and to up to 5 days with no electricity.
