Have you been hit with a rolling blackout yet?
Because of the recent heat wave, California's electricity grid is under a Flex Alert and it's nearly at its breaking point, so rolling blackouts are in effect and could be coming to your neighborhood very soon!
Why is a state as big as California having an issue keeping up with demand? The answer....the state's strict energy policies, and those policies are connected to vice presidential nominee, California Senator Kamala Harris. In fact, her stand on energy policy will point to how much more radical she is when it comes to the issue than her teammate, former Vice President Joe Biden.
According to an article in The Federalist by Chuck DeVore:
Biden’s past energy policies were fairly standard fare for old-school Democrats: massive government spending and regulations to pick winners and losers—the $535 million Solyndra collapse is illustrative. His current plan is more of the same, spending $2 trillion, some of which will go to buy the silent acceptance of Big Oil.
By comparison, Harris’ policies are a radical departure, and, as can be seen in California, fail when confronted with the real world. Harris partnered with New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal, an energy plan so ambitious it envisioned a continental network of government-run high-speed trains while grounding America’s commercial air fleet.
