June 18 (Reuters) - Just Energy Group Inc (JE.V) said on Friday it expects to recover about $100 million in costs related to a winter storm in February, if the Texas utility commission approves a relief bill financing signed by the state governor.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday signed a House bill providing a mechanism for recovery of certain costs incurred by various parties during the extreme weather event, which sent electricity prices soaring and utilities scrambling to meet a surge in heating demand.
Total electricity charges jumped by about $47 billion during the storm that also knocked out nearly half of the state's power plants.
The Ontario-based electricity and gas provider in March had filed for creditor protection in Canada and the United States, citing massive costs from the cold snap. (​https://reut.rs/3q94WVa​)
