Electricity generation capacity in the state of Texas has halved due to freezing temperatures.

The family of the 11-year-old boy, who died in a portable house in the US state of Texas, where the freezing cold and power cuts negatively affected, started a legal struggle against the companies.

It is estimated that 11-year-old Cristian Pineda was found dead by his mother in the bed where he slept with his brother and suffered from hypothermia.

Stating that the electricity and heating system of the house was disabled for two days, Pineda’s family filed a $ 100 million lawsuit against the electricity provider companies for “causing death as a result of negligence”.

The mother of the 11-year-old alleged in their lawsuit that the electricity companies ignored the recommendations made to prepare their systems for the winter and “put profits before the public interest.”
