(Sacramento) – The Great Solar Eclipse will pass over California on August 21st, reducing the amount of  renewable power going to the state’s electrical grid. To offset the lost solar power, Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward), and millions of other Californians, will be conserving power. Be a part of the Great Solar Eclipse energy conservation team, watch and share this video. 

For three hours on August 21, more than 60 percent of the sun will be obscured by the moon during a solar eclipse the likes of which won’t be seen again until 2045.

This is the first time in California’s history that the renewable energy infrastructure developed throughout the past decade will be challenged by a major eclipse. Regulators are predicting a loss of nearly 5.6 gigawatts in solar power production.

Without a doubt, our power grid will operate with ease. We can use this brief drop in solar production as an opportunity to demonstrate how we have overcome energy obstacles without the use of antiquated and even harmful forms of energy.

Conserving energy during the eclipse will alleviate the stress on the state’s solar energy grid and signal a move away from reliance of fossil fuels to power our homes and cities. Californians are encouraged to unplug unused appliances, upgrade to more energy efficient LED lightbulbs and be conscious of the appliances they use in preparation for the eclipse.

Let’s do our part to cut our energy consumption during the eclipse.

In my office, we are unplugging any device not in use, keeping lights off in areas where staff is not working and meetings are not taking place.

For more information about the eclipse, how it will affect us and what you can do visit cpuc.ca.gov and energyupgradeca.org
