ERCOT says that rolling blackouts were necessary to avoid a grid breakdown that would take months to restore. Why would it take months to restore a power grid failure?

It is only unreliable in some places. Where I live, it is the same old usual impact from storms. My brother just bought a generator in a city which used to have excellent service, but its utility is run by criminals who are on the verge of being sent to prison for a very long time. I wish he had told me. For the same amount of money he could have bought a Tesla Powerwall, which would have had a much longer service life in the future he, and everyone else in the world are about to embark on. I haven’t argued with him about this yet. But standby batteries are likely to become property which the local utility will pay you to own. Maybe not enough to justify the entire cost, but certainly enough to defray the cost and provide you with 100% reliable power service. 58% of solar panels built worldwide were sold to developing nations in 2018. You can see why batteries might be more valuable than generators in places which don’t have a mature electricity market yet. In the U.S. we have a mix of increased reliability due to improving technology, and reduced reliability due to utilities which are attempting to manipulate public perception in order to increase revenue. States which rely on performance contracting have few of these problems, but it’s not a simple conversation. You have to have a few people who actually understand utility ratemaking in order to improve it, and one political party in this country is opposed to understanding utility ratemaking. Maybe that’s why it is reputedly getting worse. Depending on where you live, there may be local factors. California (a very long way from Ohio where my brother and I live) has attempted to blame the utilities for climate-change induced wildfires, while at the same time short-changing the utilities for power line maintenance. You can’t have it both ways, and while I deeply and seriously respect California’s long history of pioneering and advancements on many fronts, their handling of the current situation with wildfires is not an area that I see being handled well. You either pay the utility explicitly on the basis of how few problems t have with their transmission and distribution, or you get crap like this. One from column A, or one from column B. No multiple choice answers. No free lunch. Everyone wants good utility regulation, but almost everyone wants someone else to make it happen. Tough luck, kids. Performance based contracting comes in many shapes and sizes. It can be simpler or more complex. No form of utility regulation is immune to corrupt or stupid regulation. Lawmakers who think the public isn’t paying attention start to think t can create a direct pipeline between the utility bill and their campaign accounts. That’s when you get natural gas pipeline leaks that take months to put out, and entire towns wiped out by a fire that started when a plant grows tall enough to touch a power line.

Blackout PDF: All You Need to Know

And that is the situation we find ourselves in. How are you going to build a new nuclear plant without electricity reliability? Not very easily. There isn’t a market yet which supports a new nuclear plant, and without electricity reliability it is a dead-end which makes it too risky for a utility to support. There are ways around it for new nuclear plants. First, you could have an alternate energy plant installed to fill the existing void, and this could provide its own kind of reliability. But these plants are not that cheap to build, and their operating costs tend not to be as low as their construction costs. Nuclear is an expensive and dangerous way to make cheap energy because it is so reliant on a reliable power grid. No matter how you slice it, it requires an energy source that is inherently reliable, yet the majority of its.
