Most Americans really like the idea of clean, renewable power. The daunting problem with renewable energy has historically been its variability—it only works when the sun shines or the wind blows. California has been the national leader in renewables, with a legislated mandate for 33 percent of our power from them by 2020, and much talk of a further requirement of around 50 percent by 2030. Is it possible and practical to base the power grid on renewables? Will the lights go out? And how much will it cost us to get there?
