California Power Grid teetering close to the edge of collapse

Electricity grids have been built with reserve capacity in the past. In case things go wrong, you are not toast immediately. Renewables have used up all this built-in reserve capacity for free. It was a hidden subsidy of sorts while they claimed that they are the cheapest source of electricity now. They could do that because they used stuff they did never have to pay for. And now, all the free stuff has been used up and there is nothing to fall back onto anymore. Something bad happens, you get it straight into your face. Thank Renewables for every blackout.
