California is experiencing its first rolling blackouts in 19 years. While there’s plenty of blame to go around, there’s not much actual planning or preparation for such an event.
As more power outages loom, there still is no clear cause for the blackouts, according to the mainstream media. That’s been causing everyone to point fingers. Energy experts on Monday cited a litany of potential causes for the rotating outages that affected hundreds of thousands of California residents Friday and Saturday nights. According to Politico, some of the reasons for the rolling blackouts could be ballooning demand, inadequate transmission, an overreliance on renewable energy, and the incursion of new energy providers that don’t have the same obligation to maintain reserves as traditional utilities do.
