Amid state energy shortages and rolling blackouts, California Governor Gavin Newsom admitted that over-reliance on “renewable” energy sources contributed to the State’s energy shortfall.
Apparently conditions led to lack of wind hitting the wind turbines in windmills, and cloudy skies led to less solar energy than needed.
Newsom explained “While we’ve had some peak gust winds, wind gust events across the state have been relatively mild.”
Friday the state fell 1,000 megawatts short of demand, Saturday they fell 450 megawatts short.
Newsom openly admitted fault, saying “We failed to predict and plan these shortages and that’s simply unacceptable.” He added that actions would be taken so “we never come back into this position again.”
