They are building them as fast as they can. Unfortunately they are all being built out of environmental red tape.

I thought it was air conditioning in the summer that caused these problems (?) Can someone with knowledge fill us in?

I thought she had switched to the gasoline model. It has a 12 1/2 HP Briggs and Stratton engine. Also comes with a kickstart and reverse.

What affect is the Mohave Generation Station turning off New Year's Eve going to have? I understand that is 1.2 million homes worth of power going off line...maybe permanently.

Well, she saves the gas powered one for when James is out of town. When he's home, she's afraid he might use it on himself.

If you can find the money they will build. But if you suggest revenue bonds be prepared to change residence addresses. There will be an expedition mounted immediately, heading north to hunt you down.

Not sure how to read this but I think if the red line is over the green there might be a problem.

Directions ....

Go here:

oasis.caiso.com

Then go to far right tab....which says System Load..... and select it

On the Following panel.....labeled System Load Reports.....activate the System Load button under heading ....select report.....move cursor down and to the right and click submit.....

wait.....for me on broadband it is less than 30 seconds....

It is a real time chart by hour of the current day....

I wonder if the State will allow its citizens to use their fireplaces while the energy is deficient?

:-(
