But unlike previous extreme weather events in Texas which led to deadly blackouts, the grid is holding up remarkably well this week. Several experts told CNN that it's owed in large part to strong performances from wind and solar, which generated 27 gigawatts of electricity during Sunday's peak demand -- close to 40% of the total needed.

But, several on here told us Texas has the worst grid in the US. Which is it?

It's a good thing that you clarified that the renewables are working well this week. Because a few weeks ago when temperatures were over 100 degrees in Texas, wind power was $hitting the bed.

it's as if the D's don't realize that when the wind stops blowing, they sit in the dark.

That sounds unlikely
