Governor Newsom is in BIG trouble w the Squad(Green New Deal) and the DNC. We have preached, for years, that renewable energy MUST be backed up.  For every BigWind site, the grid MUST have ADDITIONAL backup energy from coal or gas.  The Green ‘Unreliables’ have proven their worth as useless, today.  The liberal energy policies of Gov. Newsom have hogtied the reliable energy producers, coal, gas and nuclear.  As a result, there is not enough of them to produce the needs of California.  What happens then? ROLLING BLACKOUTS….And, has he learned his lesson? NO, read the final words below…Just another reason, of many, to NOT move to the sunshine state of Cali…

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that the state had to “sober up” about the fact that renewable energy sources had failed to provide enough power for the state at peak demand, and needed “backup” and “insurance” from other sources.

Newsom addressed journalists and the public in the midst of ongoing electricity blackouts that began on Friday, as hundreds of thousands of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) customers in northern and central California lost power…

One reason the state lacked power, officials admitted, was its over-reliance on “renewables” — i.e. wind and solar power.

There was not enough wind to keep turbines going, Newsom said, and cloud cover and nightfall restricted solar power…

On Friday, Newsom said, the state had fallen about 1,000 megawatts short; on Saturday, it fell 450 megawatts short. Sunday saw only “modest or minor” interruptions. But on Monday, he said, the state would be 4,400 megawatts short of “where we believe we need to be.”…

“We failed to predict and plan these shortages,” Newsom admitted boldly, “and that’s simply unacceptable.” He said he took responsibility for the crisis, and for addressing it immediately, so that “we never come back into this position again.”

Newsom said the state would try to address shortfalls through conservation, and through procuring new sources of energy.

Though the state would continue its “transition” to 100% renewable energy, Newsom said, “we cannot sacrifice reliability as we move forward in this transition.”…
