INTERVIEW: California Energy Primer
Where is California getting its power today? Why is our state behind Texas and Iowa in wind energy? Will renewable energy create more jobs, and how long will they be around?
These are some of the questions tied to the debate over how to achieve the provisions of AB 32, California's 2006 landmark climate change law. To get some answers, producer Saul Gonzalez spoke via Skype with Peter Asmus, who literally wrote the book on California energy — Introduction to California Energy.
Watch the interview to find out how one of the keys to renewable energy may be hiding in Imperial County, how power grids will be more like the Internet, and why L.A. is the best place to buy cheap solar power.
