Ahh, yes, I can visualize the Tinder biographies now…
“My name is Chad and I love to wine and dine a pretty lady. We can even dance around my living room to some R&B oldies. The electricity between us won’t be the only thing that’s powered in MY home.”
I gagged just reading that back to myself in a cheesy, douche fraternity voice.
Anyways, back to the big picture here. If you want your electricity to be dependent on the sun and the wind (I want you Seattle residents to think long and hard about the future of your solar power on this one), then vote for Biden.
On the other hand, if you want electricity and energy that you can count on, irrespective of the weather and its bipolar nature (HA so punny), then you’ll vote for Trump. It’s just that simple.
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.
As the West Coast has been experiencing record-breaking temperatures in the midst of the current heat waves, electricity is at high demand as northern and central California are experiencing ongoing electricity blackouts.
Officials, including Newsom, have even admitted that there has been an over-reliance on renewable sources, such as solar power and wind, to which officials state is one reason why California lacked electricity.
There was not enough wind to keep turbines going, Newsom said, and cloud cover and nightfall restricted solar power.
I mean, I know wind and cloud cover are always fluctuating, but I feel like nightfall should have been anticipated a little better.
“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.”
Newsom is promising more focus on energy storage as he reminds the public to continue conserving energy, such as remembering to turn the lights off in rooms that are not in use, and setting the air conditioning to 78 degrees between 3:00 pm and 10:00 pm.
I don’t know about you guys, but my SRP bill alone is a reminder enough to conserve the damn energy.
I conserve the energy I’m using so I can correspondingly conserve my income.
