California lacks power to charge electric cars - The Gateway Pundit


California Urges Avoiding Charging Electric Cars to Ward Off Blackouts in Heatwave Because State Loses Solar Power When the Sun Goes Down

Just days after passing a law banning new sales of gasoline powered cars by 2035, California is urging residents to avoid charging their electric vehicles during peak hours in the coming week to help ward off blackouts during an expected heatwave. ...

California’s electric vehicle mandate will be phased in, according to Cal Matters:

“Automakers will have to gradually electrify their fleet of new vehicles, beginning with 35% of 2026 models sold, increasing to 68% in 2030 and 100% for 2035 models. As of this year, about 16% of all new car sales in California are zero-emission vehicles, twice the share in 2020.” ...

Consumer conservation likely needed this weekend to avert power outages.

California is like watching a Monty Python skit. First shut down all the fossil fuel generating stations. Next bankrupt the State by subsidizing alternative sources of energy that at best could meet only 25% of their after hours electrical demand. And then further antagonize the situation by legislating the forced replacement of traditional automotives with electric powered ones, which will further tax the deficient grid.
