Since experts agree that frozen wind turbines had a “minimal” effect on the recent energy crisis in Texas, no one should use the current sufferings of Texans as an opportunity to make political points about renewable energy (“Could a Texas-size failure hit New York?” Feb. 18).

One essential part of any such system is a robust energy grid. On that front, New Yorkers can be cheered by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s intention, as stated in his State of the State speech this year, to make needed investment in New York’s transmission system.
