Was the Texas energy crisis a point for more interstate transmission? It could be. Texas's power grid sits on an island as big as Texas and uses energy produced only in Texas.

Had Texas been more interconnected, nearby states could have provided some power to lessen the burden on the state's grid. In a future of increased weather extremes, interstate transmission should be seen as a safety net, if nothing else.
