"I'm concerned about the state of California's ability to provide sufficient clean electricity that really could power the entire state, as there seems to be this shift," Andersen said."

Congratulations to a voice of reality/sanity (Andersen) for raising this issue.

The state can't provide sufficient amounts - but it doesn't matter. Expect to be told by the "world is coming to an end" and "climate emergency" crowd (most of the politicians in the state) that we will just have to pay more, use less, and/or do without (rolling blackouts). Wind and solar are unreliable energy sources despite people feeling good about using them. There is nothing "good" whatsoever about getting rid of an abundant, clean, and reliable one.

What about asking people to use natural energy from the sun during summer heat days to hang up their clothes after washing in the sun to save electricity and water, do not get stock in traffic during 100 degrees f in summer to put more heat out there and consume more water. Use electricity also consume water, plus air conditioners blows heat during warm or hot days. Added more heat to the summer.
