How about all that climate saving alternative energy in California, looks like it's working out well for them. I wonder how long the power has to be turned off for all climate change support to drop to 0. I guess we'll find out. I bet its only a few hours.
I understand the outages started when a natural gas plant went off line last Friday. Maybe it is the FF that is unreliable?
OK that and the CAISO called for load reduction with about 9% reserve when the expected standard is closer to 3.5%. Poor management?
Then Newsom is outspoken about these issues and the reluctance to serve the customer even with increased costs. The next day but some miracle the CAISO website is showing and extra 4,000 MW of supply reflecting the change to service over profit.
The sooner we can oust the old cronies of FF the better is my opinion. Yes CA has a long way to go but I believe we are on the right path.
A natural gas plant dropping out occasionally is not expected. But they cut power to so many people it could be from just 1 natural gas plant going off line.
I think new mexico is on the right path. The cheapest or 2nd cheapest electricity in the nation. Have a lot of wind power installed, going to close the last coal plant in the state by 2024. All the new demand is being met with wind, ect, ect, ect.
We're not going to virtue signal by sitting in the dark and sweating our asses off.
For me I'm not going to have a power bill about 8 to 10 months of the year on account of the solar panels.
