Four board members of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) are resigning after backlash to their out-of-state residency status.

ERCOT sent a notice to the Public Utility Commission saying their board chair, vice chair, finance and audit chair and human resources and governance committee chair will be stepping down from their positions on Wednesday, The Texas Tribune reported.

“The Board Chairman, Board Vice Chairman and both Committee Chairman leadership roles will be vacant,” the notice says.

The positions will not be immediately filled, according to The Texas Tribune. 

The Hill has reached out to ERCOT for comment.

Only out-of-state board members have stepped down from their positions amid mounting public pressure as many question why ERCOT had top officials who do not live in Texas.

Vice chair Peter Cramton lives in Germany, and board chair Sally Talberg lives in Michigan, according to The Texas Tribune.

The residency of finance and audit chair Terry Bulger and Raymond Hepper, human resources and governance committee chair, was unknown since some information has been removed from the ERCOT website after members started receiving threats, ERCOT officials said last week.

The organization has come under intense scrutiny after millions of Texans were left without power during a winter storm that hit the Lone Star State. The storm killed dozens of people and left many without electricity or water.
