California Takes Unprecedented Measure to Save Dying Electric Grid

Recently, there has been a lot of coverage devoted to California in the media, and it would seem that none of it has been positive.

The majority of the issues that we have been observing can be attributed to the energy crisis that the state is currently facing. At the very least, California has battled with a burden on the electricity grid for the second year in a row, but if I’m not mistaken, the issue stretches back even farther than that.

For whatever reason, their electrical grid is constantly being overwhelmed. During the year 2019, the New York Post reported that an old man who was powerless without his oxygen machine passed away after the electricity in his home was cut off.

The power company cut off power to millions of Californians in an effort to try to prevent wildfires from occurring during the dry and windy weather conditions that were occurring in conjunction with large forest fires. He wasn’t the only person whose power was cut off, but he may have been the only one who died as a result.

Now, California is in such bad shape that they’re now resorting to activating gas generators for the first time ever as their electric grid suffers.

“We have now entered the most intense phase of this heat wave,” said Elliot Mainzer, president and chief executive of the California Independent System Operator, according to The Sacramento Bee.

“The potential for rotating outages has increased significantly.”

He added that the grid faced “energy deficits of 2,000 to 4,000 megawatts, which is as much as 10 percent of normal electricity demand.”

Yet, this is the Governor who is making it illegal to sell gas-fueled cars by the year 2035 according to MSN.

If their grid can’t handle everyday life right now, what makes them think that they’re going to be able to handle tens of millions more electric vehicles in just over 10 years? Does he realize how much work needs to be accomplished in the next 10 years and how much money it would take to do this?
