Liberal California Dealing With Rolling Power Blackouts During Summer Heatwave

Like much of the country, the state of California is dealing with summer heat.

Unlike the rest of the country, California embraces a liberal policy on energy. They have moved away from fossil fuels and nuclear energy to depend more heavily on solar and wind power.

How is that working out for them? Not well.

They are now suffering with rolling blackouts in the state.

The organization that manages California’s electric grid was inadequately prepared for a scorching heat wave that led to rolling blackouts in a state already grappling with massive wildfires and a global pandemic, according to a New York Times report.

Droves of power plants were either down or producing below peak strength prior to the Golden State’s record-breaking temperatures in mid-August, the Times reported, citing data from the dashboard maintained by the California Independent System Operator. Sites generating 15% of the electricity on California’s grid were completely offline.

CAISO, as the organization is known, wrote in a letter to Californa Gov. Gavin Newsom that it’s still trying to understand exactly why the waves of blackouts on Aug. 14 and 15 became necessary but conceded that “capacity shortfalls played a major role.”

All Americans should be aware that if the Democrats win the White House this fall, they intend to take the whole country in this direction.

Sounds awful, doesn’t it?

This is just one more reason to vote for Trump in November.
