California Adding 5 Temporary Natural Gas Power Plants to Help Alleviate Energy Shortage

CA Globe: The California Department of Water Resources (CDWR) announced on Thursday that the state will be temporarily expanding natural gas power by adding new power plants due to energy supply concerns.

According to the CDWR, five new gas powered generators will be temporarily installed in existing power plants. Each generator will produce up to 30 megawatts each, for a grand total of 150 megawatts at full capacity, enough to power roughly 25,000 homes. All 5 generators are expected to be online around mid-September.

Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Marysville) commented on Twitter about Gov. Gavin Newsom’s emergency proclamation:

“Desperate to avoid blackouts caused by his own mismanagement, Newsom turns to the same natural gas plants he has vilified. How many ways can you spell hypocrisy? MORE

  1. If we would have been adding reservoirs for Hydro Electric and water storage we wouldn’t be in the shit show we are currently in. But, Oh No, By all means, listen to those morons from Friends of The River. You stupid fucks.

  2. Currently 88,000 acres of Timber burned in El Dorado National Forest as of around 5:00 PM. Why, because it’s a fucking tinder box. Also caused by some retarded hippies that the court takes more seriously than Forestry Service Experts.

  3. Wait a minute!

    Wasn’t the smart grid designed to allow electric cars to charge at night when electricity is cheaper & reverse feed back into the grid when electricity prices are higher so that their owners could profit from their wise investment?

  4. Brad,

    With all those fires burning in California does that mean that all the pizza is now “Wood Oven” flavoured?

  5. I see a little sillohetto of a clam
    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the fandango
    Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me!

    Galileo Galileo
    Mimimimi, Galileo
    Galileo Figaro! Magnifico

    I’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me
    He’s just a poor boy, from a poor family
    Spare in his life from this…

    Easy come, Easy Go. Will you let me go?

  6. Brad,

    Thanks, The cartoon.

    My dad would only give me a few toons to watch before it was, “get outside & do something or I’ll smash the F-in TV”.

    That was one of the ones I didn’t get to watch much.

  7. “temporary”…Does that mean they go away if he survives the recall, or they go away if he loses? Either way, they’re gone after the recall vote. A tyrant gives and takes at his whim, and especially takes if he’s losing his whims.

  8. Tom Slick was one of the cartoons on George of the Jungle, “Watch out for that tree.” It was created by the same studio as Rocky and Bullwinkle and was funny as hell but didn’t last as long as Rocky and Bullwinkle.

  9. Will the Gov’s actions allow 25,000 more homes to receive power? Or will the extra power go to the homes of the Gov’s millionaire supporters? Or maybe to the various Democrat party election centers to provide enough power to help them steal the election?

  10. Tom Slick’s voice was the same one used for Dudley Dooright. I always wanted to see an autobiography written by Otto Matic, the true story of the automatic transmission. You started it with bringing up Tom Slick, thanks I needed a good laugh this morning. And the autobiography of how how the car was created by Otto Mobile.

  11. OMG, how much CO2 will that release and what about the planet ?!?!? What about the chillrun?!!!


    Fucking hypocrites! Why don’t they turn off their air conditioners and smoothie blenders and do their laundry down by the river on the rocks.
    Oh that’s right, their rivers are dry because they wasted that resource watering palm trees on Rodeo Drive.
