At the heart of the problem, is simply that EP electric broke down because they’re not designed to handle below-freezing weather.
This caused exposed pipes and other equipment to freeze. Unlike states like IL or NY where lengthy cold weather IS EXPECTED, EP Electric does not have all of their equipment insulated or protected in the same way. Northern states have their generators housed INDOORS, EP electric has all it's generator OUTDOORS to withstand our summer heat.
