In an op-ed published on September 25 in the Orange County Register, Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette decryed the state of California’s handling of its energy crisis.

Brouillette criticized state leaders for championing a 100 percent renewable energy plan that ignores nuclear and natural gas. He also found fault with the plan to prematurely close the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.

He said it: “Californians deserve better than to suffer through rolling blackouts and reduced energy access,” Brouillette wrote. “The state should use America’s abundant energy resources and energy innovations to usher in a future of secure, reliable, and clean energy.”
