Welcome to the world’s first Straight-Talk Solar Cast! This is your go-to podcast for answers about solar!  In this week’s episode we discuss recent solar news.  Did you know that PG&E is planning rolling blackouts for the summer? This is generating a lot of interest in solar power + battery systems.  We discuss the substance vs. the fluff.  And a few more happenings this week in solar industry news.  Here’s a recent quote from NPR:

“This year, for the first time, the company may shut down the giant,  high-voltage transmission lines that serve as arteries to the system,  possibly leaving large cities like San Francisco and San Jose, hundreds  of miles from a wildfire zone, in the dark. This is raising concerns  about how widespread power shutdowns will affect the most vulnerable.”
