California Powered 100% by Renewables

Wow. California now has so much solar it has to turn it of at times during the day. They have also changed the payback for individual consumers who sell electricity back to the grid. While this makes solar payback time longer, it also encourages batteries. This lets individuals store electricity locally and sell it back when it is more profitable (usually in the evenings after sundown).

Driven by solar, California’s net demand hit zero on Sunday
