as a whole? or individual communities. Makes a difference. We charge during day time - and still produce enough PV during daytime to run the meter backwards while charging.drees wrote:So I noticed that yesterday the 21st had Thermal (non-imported anyway) production drop to only 1.3 GW at 12PM out of a total demand of 16.8 GW. If San Onofre were still running with 2 GW of production, California could have shut down all local thermal generation for a couple hours.

Does that mean that it could actually be cleanest to charge your car during the day now with all the solar that's on the grid? I am very curious as to what the generation makeup of imports is at this point - is it gas? Coal? Hydro?
