Green Energy: Some Encouraging News

I have said many times that I would be fine with renewable energy if some its inherent issues could be solved. One of them, on which I have posted in detail twice, is the inability of the electrical grid to handle more than a trivial amount of "green" energy.

Now, that limitation is being challenged by both experience in California and some new technology:

Today, California often gets as much as 30% of its power from renewables; there are periods of the day when production can soar to 40%. California legislators just approved a plan that would require half of all power to come from renewables by 2030. Still, the tipping point the power industry feared hasn’t materialized.

So, here is the other side of the story. I hope they are correct. Time will tell.
