California fashions itself as the national leader in the transition to green energy. Let’s hope the Golden State’s “zero-carbon initiative” doesn’t become the playbook for the rest of the states. If it does, costs around the country will double or even triple to ratepayers. The chart below shows power costs per kilowatt hour at three of the largest utilities I. The state is two to three times more expensive than the U.S. average costs. Costs in CA are rising every year as more of the power is mandated to come from solar and batteries, according to this news account.
Someone, please explain how this is the ideal model for the entire country.
