How California Might Share its Renewable Resources

“Why and how might California share its renewable energy resources?”

 

For decades, the vast majority of energy in California has been controlled on it’s regional grid called CALISO. Because only California appointees can sit on its board, other U.S states have been reluctant to join. However, with the exponential rise of its solar energy resources, too much energy is being generated during the daytime. So much so, that California is thinking about working with its close neighbors Oregon, Washington, and Nevada to set up a regional energy grid. This way, overflowing energy from California can be sent to these states, and other forms of renewable energy can be traced back to California to manage its own demand!
