Gavin “No Energy” Newsom’s latest dream just went up in smoke – literally

The push is on from the far-Left.

Gavin “No Energy” Newsom kicked off the latest surge.

But his latest dream just went up in smoke – literally.

By hook or by crook leftists want to force electric vehicles on the public, whether we want them or not, and regardless of safety.

A Tesla Megapack battery caught fire at PG&E’s Elkhorn Battery Storage facility in Monterey County, California.

Fears of toxic smoke from the fire prompted a shelter in place advisory by local officials for 12 hours.

Although the fire was controlled, county officials caution that “smoke may still occur for several days.”

Luckily, no injuries were reported, but residents were told to shut all windows and turn off ventilation systems due to the hazardous waste material that may have entered the atmosphere due to the Tesla Megapack fire.

Shelter-in-place issued; highway shut down by EV Battery storage facility fire

The fire prompted the closure of a section of Highway 1 that was later extended due to air quality concerns.

Sirens at the former Moss Landing power plant went off Tuesday morning.

Mike Catron of Ventura was vacationing at a local RV park and said, “We were told there was a problem at the powerhouse and we received word that we should shelter in place. So we thought well ok we’ll heed the advice and we’ll stay put.”

John Hasslinger of the North Monterey County Fire Department said, “With our training, when a battery gets involved we are directed to not actively extinguish that fire we are to let that battery burn and protect exposures around.”

The mega battery is one of 256 Tesla batteries at the PG&E plant.

It eventually burned out five hours later but it continued to smolder, raising concerns the lithium-ion batteries might be releasing toxins into the air.

This caused the shelter-in-place order.

Waiting on the feds’ “all clear” for every incident will keep green energy grid an unworkable pipe dream

First responders had to wait for EPA technicians to test the air quality but many nearby took the matter in stride.

They ventured out from the RV park just across from the power plant determined that a fire scare wasn’t going to ruin their vacation.

Rhonda Catron said, “No way, we have plenty of food and plenty of libations so we are going to keep ourselves going with games and having a great time.”

Tuesday’s fire is the third fire at the former power plant since it became a destination for energy storage.

Firefighters say the technology is new and they will now work with PG&E on an after-action report to try and determine what happened and what they can learn from the latest fire which caused the facility to be shut down with damages in excess of $50,000.

All complicated stuff, and if leftists get their way in their quest to require all automobiles to be electric in the next couple of decades, these incidents are sure to be just the beginning.
