Of course, the CA PUC has not noticed how clear and sunny the afternoon sky is for the days and weeks that the grid is overheating to make up for the fact that only 20% of peak electricity, generated by local solar would be enough. Add smart controls ala Google's AI and local citizens could weather in place even if the grid failed.

There are many bits and pieces of city saving technologies that Elon Musk is bringing together: 1) military grade HEPA filters will soon be on Google's busses and other vehicles that protect people from the output of diesel cars and trucks 2) battery powered trucks that move containers from ports to warehouses and other transshipment points within one hundred miles of Alameda CA 3) automated truck convoy systems that reduce accidents from the MacArthur Maze to Tracy CA.

Batteries are the basis of all this. Moreover smart solar roofs on Walmarts and Costcos feed emergency power as needed during the weeks long series of extremely hot sunny or cold sunny days that follow storms, Food and shelter will be there and at home if the PUC deigns to let you protect yourself with efficient battery powered emergency systems.
The billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk is running a private rocket company, doubling down on alternative fuels and pressing on with Tesla after a series of accidents.

Personal assistance can be private only if it is done on your encrypted handheld device. Promises of audited end-to-end security are vaporware. Clever, domain specific algorithms, tuned to your life can exist on your device and nowhere else.

NYC can and will adapt to 15 days of extremely hot weather following a storm that wrecks grid connections to upstate. That means more green and local power backups within the city and efficient use of Windows and roofs that reduce heat transmission into apartments and offices.

Local politics wherein the State uses NYC as a cash cow and the Port Authority and the PUCs as additional means of shearing the NYC sheep has to stop. It's murder, pure and simple.

Spare me the advice. Riding bikes, jogging or walking to work during temperature inversions in the Bay Area can take 15 years off your useful life. Oh sure, MDs can keep your heart pumping for fifteen years after you give up the triathlon. GLWT
According to DEM, air quality is predicted to reach unhealthy levels during the afternoon and evening hours on Friday.

Will be more than happy to rid themselves of the Germans and French. Thoughts that the rest of Europe prefers being bossed by Germans or Russians are nonsense

People are going to die because PUCs (pronounced Pukes) refuse to encourage local emergency solar electric power. On Walmarts, Costcos, food warehouses, condos, apartment roofs, schools, courthouses, firehouses, ... Somehow there always will be a string of 10-15 days of extreme heat/cold after grid failures caused by 'acts of god' and poor engineering understanding of the weather.

We don't need to run washers in the heat but HVAC that moves air and limits temperatures to less than 85F in spring/summer/fall and more than 40F in fall/winter/spring is essential.
California's power grid operators warned homes and business on Monday to conserve electricity as rising demand for air conditioning stoked by a record-setting heat wave across the U.S. Southwest tested the region's generating capacity.
