    Sempra VP surprises, says 100 percent renewable grid is possible now“We have a solution now to adjust the intermittency of solar and wind energy that is no longer a technology challenge. Now it is an economic decision,” said Patrick Lee, Sempra Energy vice president for major project controls. “So installing a base load power plant is no longer your only option. You can now look at solar, wind and storage as alternatives, and still be able to manage the reliability of the grid.But today my answer is: The technology has been resolved. How fast do you want to get to 100 percent? That can be done today.” The gentlemen followed up in a later tweet saying, for now though – we are still dependent on gas until wind/solar/storage scales. Yes, we have the technology – economics will drive our decisions now.
