Texas Residents Regret Plan That Raises Thermostat

Share post:

An energy company called CenterPoint Energy says it also conducts twice-yearly tests that raise the temperature of homes for three hours, the last of which took place last Wednesday.

As they filed their complaint via a Reddit thread, residents in the Houston area questioned the temperature changes and also disputed the likelihood that users will be automatically registered or register themselves without reading the details.
