LA gas prices go above $5 while resident learn solar panels don’t work in blackouts
Saudi Arabia, local refineries gearing up for winter blends, weird eco-laws and regulations all leading to a 1 day spike to over $5 per gallon in various locations.
But wait, there’s more: America’s most “environmentally conscious” state got a harsh lesson in electrical engineering when many of the tens of thousands of people hit by this week’s blackout learned the hard way that solar installations don’t keep the lights on during a power outage.
That, as Bloomberg reports, is “because most panels are designed to supply power to the grid, not directly to houses. During the heat of the day, solar systems generate more juice than a home can handle. However, they don’t produce power at all at night. So systems are tied into the grid, and the vast majority aren’t working this week as PG&E cut power to much of Northern California to prevent wildfires.”
A whole lot of people suckered over the solar power scan.
