When the California electricity thieves announced that there could be power blackouts this summer they claimed it was due to reduced water flow and a reduction in hydro-power. There was nothing about shuttering the nuclear power stations or the failure to build sustainment plants. Nope. These guys are like super geniuses and claim........wait for it..........wait for it.
The California Independent System Operator (ISO), the grid operator, said the system's capacity to serve consumers will be tight in high-load periods in the summer months, especially during the evenings of hot days when solar power dissipates.
Nope. Nobody saw that coming. I think every blackout should start with Sacramento and if rolling is required, roll it over to Berkeley and San Francisco. Those people are too stupid to work out that if the sun goes down all the solar panels in the world don't generate anything, but they're the ones mandating that solar panels replace real power generators, like wind farms. snerk.

And now they want to mandate that all new construction homes have solar.

Yeah I saw that yesterday and today listened to an NPR idiot interview a news magazine idiot who said that the cost of installation was about $4-8000. Anybody can look it up and see that the national average to install solar is $25,500. California would probably double the cost. Then the People's Radio morons agreed that it would only add $40/month to your mortgage costs. Idiots and liars.

Somebody once quipped that one night some mythological giant came along, tilted North America up with the SW end pointing down and all the fruits and nuts came loose and ended up in CA. Outlandish tale? Let the reader be the judge..

Unfortunately some of them are clawing their way out and turning Arizona, Oregon and Washington into Cali+ to everybody's detriment.
