NPR ran this story about California energy, under the heading of “CLIMATE”

California just ran on 100% renewable energy

“Around 3 p.m., renewables briefly produced enough energy to supply California’s energy”

“The state is rapidly building huge battery projects for that purpose, so power generated during the day can be stored for use at sunset. But so far, it’s still a small fraction of what’s needed.”

California is breaking renewable energy records, but fossil fuels aren’t fading : NPR

California uses about 65 million gallons of liquid fuels per day for transportation.  NPR somehow missed that.


California’s battery storage can provide about 2% of their electricity needs for four hours – until the batteries go dead.
