Has the new green future already arrived in California? From Eric Peters at ericpetersautos.com:
Americans got a glimpse of the Green Future last week – and it was pretty dark.
Deliberate power outages have left millions of people in California with no lights – and no way to recharge their Teslas, either.
And it’s not because there isn’t enough power.
Rather, the state’s utility, Pacific Gas & Electric cut the power – ostensibly to prevent wildfires that might be started by downed (and hot) power lines.
But the real reason for the artificial blackout is PG&E’s massive – and government-mandated – malinvestment in “green” technologies such as wind farms and solar, which has diverted billions away from critically needed infrastructure investment, such as burying power lines so that Santa Ana winds don’t result in downed lines . . . and fires.
