The intensity around these California wildfires continues to heighten. The federal DOE issued an emergency order that puts several natural gas power facilities into use, subverting regulations that curtail the natural gas facilities due to their impact on the environment. The federal letter said that the health and safety risks of California residents going without power are greater than the environmental risks of running the natural gas facilities at "maximum capability." California is having to get creative with their electricity grids, and not in a positive way. The state needs to be putting significant dollars into smart grid technology, transmission cable refurbishment. The total damage caused by these wildfires over the years is nearly incalculable at this point.
