CALIFORNIA POWER CUTS COULD DRIVE SALES OF GAS-POWERED GENERATORS
The risk of wildfires in California prompted what may be the largest deliberate power cut in U.S. history.

Such a shift could mean a boon for solar energy systems, but also a comeback for gas-powered generators in areas bearing the brunt of extreme dry weather exacerbated by climate change.
