TEXAS homeowners have been hit with more than brutal winter storms – they are getting accompanying massive electricity bills.
Electricity bills for Texans shot up as high as $17,000 per month following a nasty winter storm that caused power outages and wrecked havoc.
The outages created a huge demand for heat, which drove up utility bills for many suffering residents.
Dallas resident Ty Williams’ bill spiked from $600 last month to almost $17,000 so far this month, he told news station.
“How in the world can anyone pay that?” said Williams, who got his bill from the energy company Griddy.
