To be more precise.. the various plants were not winterized. Things got deregulated, so they didn't keep up with maintenance and good design. Texas it their own power grid for 'independence, so their ability to import power from other states is curtailed. To a large degree, it's because of the libertarian polices of the last two governors in Texas.
