    Biden says Americans have to get ready for more blackouts as energy infrastructure nears breaking point

    (Natural News) For a couple of years, rolling blackouts have been regular occurrences in the state of California, the Midwest and the Deep South. Now, the Joe Biden administration is saying that people have to get ready for even more blackouts this summer as the energy infrastructure nears breaking point.
    In the June 3 episode of “Zoon Politicon,” commentator Holly Seeliger talked about the problems brought about by the Biden administration’s push for green energy.
    With the grid system not nearly producing enough electricity, a vast swath of land from the Great Lakes to the West Coast is at risk of blackouts as drought takes its toll amid power plant and supply chain woes.
    John Bear, CEO of Midcontinent Independent System Operator, which serves the Midwest corridor from Minnesota to the Texas Panhandle, said that energy shortages move the area in the direction of rotating blackouts. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation also lists the Midwest as the one being at the highest risk for energy cuts.
    The Federal Electricity Regulatory Commission, an independent body that oversees the U.S. electric grid, estimates that power prices in the region may soar up to 233 percent at the peak of summer, which is boosted by high demands as temperatures rise and gas prices continue to soar.
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also estimates that the average summer temperatures across the U.S. will be between 50 and 80 percent higher than normal.
    The Biden administration’s effort to transition six energy grids to a decarbonized system is also part of the problem. According to Bear, part of the effort is phasing out fossil fuel units before new batteries are available. The White House also previously announced Biden’s long-term strategy to decarbonize the U.S. economy by 2050, but under these efforts, each of North America’s six electricity grids will see power capacity decline.
    Reliability crisis could create dangerous outages in Texas, California

    Significant outages have already been faced by the Texas grid over the winter storm in February 2021, which killed 246 people. The grid is set to lose 2.9 gigawatts of gas, coal, and nuclear capacity this year, as well. Meanwhile, the grid run by Bear will lose 3.2 gigawatts of power due to retiring coal plants, which will not be replaced.

    Republican commissioners on the FERC and some industry groups argued for a slower transition to avoid energy shortfalls. One of its members, Mark Christie, said they were headed for a reliability crisis, as they are not yet ready for such a move.
    Democrats on the commission, on the other hand, are pushing that power transmission issues are the reasons for periodic blackouts, not the energy transition.
    California grid operators, in contrast, have also warned that the state faces a risk of blackouts during the next three summers due to power supply shortages. This prediction is based on an analysis of existing power supplies, with new sources expected to come online and the potential of extreme events, including potential gaps between electricity supply and peak demand.
    The state is also trying to shift to cleaner energy, although it isn’t the best long-term solution to power issues. Droughts make hydropower less available, while wildfires reduce electricity transmission, according to the California Energy Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission. (Related: NERC: Power grid problems, intense heat could lead to widespread blackouts in North America this summer.)
    California’s electricity blackouts are likely to return this summer due to supply shortages. The most precarious window for electricity supply shortages is in the early evenings after solar power stops working, and September is expected to be the most problematic month.

    Better hurry up and let in another 4-10 million Illegal Aliens to strain the system even more

    Stupid people are in abundance, and they are the conductor of this runaway train

    And Biden thinks over 200 million people should go out and buy a $70,000 electric vehicle with NO infrastructure to support it. They cannot afford food, gas, healthcare, school, utilities. They are defaulting on car loans. They are racking up the credit card debt.

    This is the deliberate destruction of our lives.

    We have massive drought, and wide-open border allowing every criminal on the planet have access. Biden has HANDED our border over to the Cartel. When the hell is someone going to arrest this administration and lock them up!

    It is interesting that the charging stations for the electric cars have back up generators that run on diesel. How many years can people hold out financially waiting for function?

    California relies on diesel generators, as it steers trucks away from diesel.
    Stephen Edelstein
    August 21, 2020

    Over the past week, charging attempts for electric-vehicle drivers in California might have been thwarted—and everyday life interrupted—by rolling blackouts in some parts of the state.
    Those were due, governor Gavin Newsom said Monday, to some "gaps" in reliability amid the state's transition to renewable energy.

    The blackouts not only created an opportunity to criticize California's aggressive renewable-energy plans, but also led to the use of diesel generators to fill those demand "gaps" just as regulators announced new plans to steer commercial trucks away from diesel.

    California Independent System Operator, the state's grid operator, has blamed the California Public Utilities Commission for the blackouts, alleging the commission underestimated how much electricity-generating capacity would be needed from utilities, according to the Los Angeles Times.

    During the grid operator's board meeting Monday, president Stephen Berberich specifically cited the lack of adequate generating capacity on hot summer evenings, when output from solar arrays diminishes even as demand from home air conditioners remains high, the paper reported.

    Now California is using diesel generators as emergency power sources. The state has 2,773 stationary and mobile generators in its inventory, according to the Diesel Technology Forum advocacy group, which cited an inventory from the California Air Resources Board (CARB).

    California utility Pacific Gas & Electric began making plans to use emergency diesel generators months ago, proposing to secure 450 megawatts of mobile generators, according to a May report from Greentech Media.

    This works out to some strange optics. On Monday, at the height of the blackout period, CARB announced a joint memorandum of understanding with 15 states and the District of Columbia aimed at achieving 100% zero-emission medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicle sales by 2050.

    The joint effort, which encompasses large pickup trucks, vans, box trucks, transit and school buses, and heavy-duty trucks, also calls for 30% zero-emission vehicle sales by 2030. In June, California independently announced plans to mandate sales of electric commercial trucks in 2024, and end sales of new diesel trucks by 2045.

    With its large ports, California has a strong incentive to curb exhaust emissions from diesel trucks. In these areas, trucks spend a lot of time idling or driving at low speeds, which can result in emissions seven times higher than laboratory certification tests, because engine temperatures are too low for emissions-control equipment to operate properly, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.

    While naysayers fear electric cars will exacerbate problems like California's rolling blackouts, they may eventually be able to provide the solution.
    Instead of overloading the grid, electric cars could discharge power back into it, acting as a buffer in place of diesel generators.

    However, this requires bidirectional charging capability that, in the United States at least, is only confirmed for the Lucid Air luxury sedan so far. It would also likely require utilities to rejigger electricity rates to encourage electric-car adoption—and, in the meantime, provide stronger incentives for just charging at off-peak times.
