IN-DEPTH: March 25 lives up to 'jinx,' brings golf ball-sized hail to Austin overnight

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Office of Attorney General received nearly 2,000 price gouging complaints during, and following, February’s devastating winter storm that left millions without power and running water, according to records obtained by KXAN.

A total of 1,960 complaints were filed between Feb. 13-26. Utility and electric companies received the most complaints of any type of business. Griddy Energy topped the list with the most complaints — 378 — of any single company. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, came second with 128 complaints, according to state records. ERCOT manages the state’s electrical grid and has been sued for its handling of the winter storm crisis.
