Texas has worst electric grid in the nation.

Awww Come on! Texas has their "own" seperate grid. I have lived in TX, NM and OK. And I see NO difference in the reliability of them. They are all good. Even the Rural Electrical systems are not that bad, and they offer cheap electricity.

And we have 2 gasoline AC Generator/Welders. One of them is a very large unit.

It is bad here. We have an ongoing joke about every time a squirrel runs on a wire or a bird lands on it, the power goes out. I just posted above how during the winter brownout last year, they blew everything trying to turn it back on. I have a decades old argument with them over a tree limb that will one day zap out the neighborhood. At least once a month one service goes out be it the power, the cable, internet or the phone so we have the public utilites’ number posted on the fridge.
