New blog by @SG_SEIA: Integrating the Western Grid Can Help Power the State with California #Solar.

As more solar is installed in California, the state continues to hit new records for solar energy production. On March 11th, California's solar power supplied more than half of the state's electricity. Expect these records to continue. We’ll need them. In a little more than a decade, renewables will need to account for more than 50% of electricity for the entire year to meet our renewable energy and climate goals. Last year large solar plants and rooftop solar together produced about 13% of the state’s energy. One challenge to meeting our clean energy and climate goals is how our electricity system operates, relying on 20th century institutions and infrastructure. Some days this spring over 10% of solar electricity on cool sunny days has been lost to “curtailment,” when solar plants reduce their production due to oversupply of electricity caused by an inflexible electricit...
