65 yuan per kilowatt-hour! What happened in Texas, USA?
The epidemic is not over yet, but the blizzard is here again. According to US news media reports, the recent winter storm that caused headaches in the United States swept through many areas of the United States, killing at least 23 people, powering out more than 4.5 million homes and businesses, and more people without water for more than 14.5 million people. Texas is particularly affected. What makes Texas worse is that it is not only affected by cold and snowy weather, but winter storms have also caused massive power outages in the area.

The need for more power supply and demand in Texas coupled with the impact of the harsh storm environment has also led to a rapid increase in local electricity prices. According to data from the Texas Electric Power Reliability Commission, Texas wholesale electricity prices earlier this week At one time, it exceeded US$10,000/MWh, which is equivalent to more than US$10 per kilowatt-hour, which is about 65 yuan per kilowatt-hour of electricity, which is nearly 200 times higher than the average price of electricity.
Electricity prices have skyrocketed, and residents have received nearly $7,000 in electricity bills
The sky-high electricity bill has made local residents miserable. It is reported that the electricity bills of local residents in Texas since February have reached nearly 7,000 U.S. dollars, or about 45,000 yuan! The sky-high electricity bill in February is equivalent to the salary level of ordinary people working for half a year or even a year!
Electricity is an indispensable energy source in life, and it is also a necessity in our daily life. And with the increase in the average consumption of electricity per household, the price of electricity per kilowatt-hour is gradually increasing. That is to say, the more electricity is used, the more expensive it is. Other things depreciate when they are used, but they increase in value. Even if we adhere to the concept of “can not turn on the lights without turning on the lights”, the effect of saving electricity is still minimal.
