California is enacting all kinds of green initiatives, mostly due to their Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom.
They want to ban electric vehicles and live on wind and solar power.
Yet they can’t even keep their power on as it is.

California Avoids Blackouts With Bigger Test Ahead as Heat Looms
California narrowly avoided implementing rotating outages on Monday while officials warned that the state’s power grid will face a bigger test on Tuesday amid a record-breaking heat wave.
The state’s grid operator canceled its grid emergency late Monday evening after deploying supplies that helped keep the lights on even as electricity use soared to its highest level in five years.
Power demand is forecast to be even higher on Tuesday, potentially reaching an all-time high as business and schools reopen after the long Labor Day holiday weekend amid triple-digit temperatures.
“We are moving into the extreme part of this heat wave,” said Elliot Mainzer, chief executive officer of the California Independent System Operator, known as Caiso, which runs the state’s grid. Caiso expects supply shortfalls as high as 3,400 megawatts on Tuesday evening, the equivalent of several large power plants.
Maybe they should focus on learning to use the power system they have in place now before they go looking for alternatives.
NEW: California’s grid operator has declared an Energy Emergency Alert effective today from 5pm to 9pm. They are “strongly urging” people to use less power this evening to “avoid rotating power outages.” @FoxNews

California sits on enough energy-producing resources to power the entire country. By an order of magnitude.
But they’re running out of power because communism destroys all. The climate change death cult is about to paint its masterpiece. https://t.co/BKV109WxLj

"California has aggressively closed natural-gas power plants in recent years, leaving the state increasingly dependent on solar farms that go dark late in the day just as electricity demand peaks."https://t.co/oHodoREYaH

The leaders of California are doing this to the people of their own state and they don’t need to at all.
