Nipped in the bud?
I often discuss lagging infrastructure and business relocation. Here is a case of new business and the infrastructure challenge it poses. Link in title:
California energy regulators are warning marijuana farmers that the state's power grid does not have the capacity to support the increased demand it expects from electricity-hungry growing operations now that weed is legal in the state.
The California Public Utilities Commission met this week in San Francisco with marijuana farmers and utilities, to figure out how the state will be able to provide the 1 to 2 percent spike in electricity demand it expect to see from pot farms.
Sigh, first world problems.
