Reason For California Outages?
Everyone’s wondering about the widespread California power outages? How come they seem to happen every year? Why do they appear to be getting worse all the time? One reason that’s never discussed. California is relying much more heavily than other states on so-called renewable sources of energy, namely, wind and solar power.
But these sources, especially wind, are just not as reliable as coal or other traditional sources of energy. Why? Because if winds are too slow or too fast, the generators have to kick off. When that happens, power drops and outages occur. More from Lisa Haven.
Meanwhile, one of the wildfires in the Simi Valley threatened the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Authorities expressed confidence the fire could be stopped but they evacuated the staff and public as a precaution. More from Next News Network.
