One week after a harsh freeze caused ERCOT to order power outages across Texas, the city of San Benito has had power restored to it.
AEP Texas reported that power was restored to 95% of all customers as of Feb. 19. San Benito administrators have worked with AEP Texas to make the San Benito Fairgrounds a staging area for maintenance crews arriving from outside the area to restore power to the city. According to a Facebook post on the City of San Benito’s page, over 100 service trucks were expected to arrive on the weekend of Feb. 20-21.
Administrators shared a few links on the City of San Benito Facebook page to help guide citizens who are dealing with damage from the winter storm. The links include:
