As the sun’s shape dwindled to a slender crescent on Monday, managers of California’s electrical grid assured a not-terribly-nervous public that they had this whole solar eclipse thing well in hand. As expected, the sun’s temporary disappearing act plunged the state’s solar farms into semi-darkness, just when they’d normally be revving up. At the control center for California’s electricity grid, in Folsom, display screens showed solar generation plummeting as the eclipse neared its mid-morning peak. Yet the grid managers with the California Independent System Operator were ready, having spent more than a year planning for the event. No blackouts plagued the state, officials said.
