The plan informed media sources, environmentalists, and energy professionals are proposing again and again. And, again:
"There are several obvious and practical problems with California’s rush to 100 percent renewable energy. The first is that some renewable energy sources, namely solar and wind, are intermittent and subject to disruptions..."
"Next, battery storage is not currently capable of bridging the gap when renewable sources go offline..."
"Finally, renewables are not nearly as 'green' as many environmentalists would like you to believe..."
"Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, which provides 9 percent of the state’s electricity, is slated for premature closure, taking a huge amount of reliable power off the grid. The plant still has years of useful life, and the state must find a way to keep it online if California leaders want to retain this source of clean, reliable electricity."
