State breaks another renewable energy record 19.5.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology

State breaks another renewable energy record A stretch of sunny, windy days, combined with brimming reservoirs at hydroelectricity facilities across the state, helped California reach yet another renewable energy milestone last weekend. Early Saturday afternoon, renewable sources produced a record 67.2 percent of the electricity on the portion of state’s power grid controlled by the California Independent System Operator. More than half of the renewable energy flowing across the grid at that moment — 58.7 percent — came from large solar facilities. Last month, the federal Energy Information Administration, the statistics division for the Department of Energy, reported that for a span of three hours on March 11, solar power met roughly half of all electricity demand across much of the state. Greenlee added that the steady stream of record-breaking days is a positive sign that the grid is adapting well to the influx of renewable energy.
