The Truth About California’s Rolling Blackouts, 3192
Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on the truth about renewable energy.
California is being hit with rolling blackouts in the midst of a heat wave.
About a third of California’s electrical production supposedly comes from renewable sources and while California’s left-wing, climate change true believer leadership touts this as an amazing achievement, now they have to explain to their constituents why their power is being shut off in the midst of a heat wave when they need it most.
To his credit, California Gov. Gavin Newsome admitted that the heavy use of renewables left the state vulnerable to rolling blackouts.
Solar energy works great when the sun is shining, but the vast majority of people also want electricity after the sun goes down.
Renewable energy groupies don’t often mention it when they promote those huge ugly wind turbines, but they only produce maximum electricity in a relatively small range of wind speeds and none at all on calm days or days when the wind speed is too high.
The problem - and unfortunately for Californians their leaders didn’t forsee this as a problem - that the sun doesn't shine at night and the wind doesn’t always blow at the correct speed.
What California does, so that it can keep eliminating coal, nuclear and even natural gas plants as power sources, is buy power from other states that do use coal, nuclear and natural gas when California’s vaunted renewables are not producing.
The rolling blackouts are caused by their sources of reliable energy in other states not having enough extra power to sell.
If California were honest, it would admit that you can’t depend on wind and solar, something that is obvious to almost anyone who knows the difference between night and day.
Instead California pretends it can get a third of its electricity from renewables, but only because it buys power from coal, nuclear and gas plants in other states. I guess if you can believe that the greenhouse gases from emerging economies don’t contribute to global warming, you can also believe that the coal and gas plants are acceptable as long as they are over the state line.
Proponents of renewable energy like Gov. Newsome rarely talk about the true cost of renewable energy. In this case the price people have to pay is rolling blackouts.
Californians are pretty out there, but it’s hard to believe they would vote for more renewable energy if they were told the cost is going to be intermittent electrical service.
Of course there is a simple solution that would keep renewable energy groupies and people who want dependable electricity happy, California could build enough gas power plants to supply the state with dependable electricity – in Nevada.
I’m still reporting from just outside the citadel of American freedom. Good day.
