Big solar farms push to help fix state power fluctuations 20.10.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Big solar farms helped create a power-grid predicament in California. And now they’re offering to help solve it. Solar panels have proliferated in the state, flooding the grid with power supplies in the middle of the day when the sun’s out — and then quickly vanishing after sunset. This has created a sharp curve in California’s net-power demand that’s shaped like a duck. And the duck curve is getting steeper every year, sending wholesale electricity prices plunging into negative territory, forcing generators offline and making it increasingly difficult to maintain the reliability of California’s transmission lines.

This week, with the burnt-log haze beginning to thin, the power came back on in downtown Sonoma, and restaurants began to think about what the weekend might bring. The selection in the pastry case at Basque Boulangerie on the Sonoma Plaza was sparse on Tuesday, but it was enough to draw a line of women in their 60s, who greeted each other with hugs. Nearby, at Mary’s Pizza Shack, managers from the chain’s other locations converged to help reopen the restaurant, covering for workers who were still out of town. At the Swiss Hotel, owner Hank Marioni and manager Kristin Schantz straightened tablecloths and chairs while their cooks rushed to get everything prepared for dinner.
