Positives: This happens nearly every morning in California. The sun rises and 4 gigawatts of industrial solar power comes online. There’s another 2.7 gigawatts of residential rooftop solar that doesn’t show on this graph. So what we have here are six nuclear power plants worth of power that are producing minimal carbon emissions and no radioactive waste.
Of course, this is a fraction of the solar power Germany produces on a clear day so California can do better. It’s still a very good thing.
