ERCOT CEO Trip Doggett is under fire. During a meeting Thursday of the Texas Public Utility Commission, he was made aware that his job may be on the line. As part of a routine review of ERCOT rules, Commissioner Donna Nelson proposed “adding language that says the commission at its own discretion and without ERCOT board approval may terminate the employment of the chief executive officer.”
Nelson said there was clear evidence that ERCOT should have been aware there were problems before the blackouts last week.
