400,000 people without power at 9 AM: Not looking good for the rest of the summer.

Extreme heat is crippling the southern United States and as of 9 AM 400,000 people are having to endure this heat without power and air conditioning. While the amount of renewables on the grid continues to grow quickly, unfortunately, the retirements of fossil fuel generation is out pacing the increase in solar and wind.

There is no short or medium term solution. We haven’t addressed climate change, so extreme weather will continue to increase and make matters worse as more heat increases the air conditioning load putting additional strain on the grid. Adding to that we continue to add more load to the grid with EVs and electrification. All of this is occurring without an overall plan or strategy. That is a prescription for disaster.
