Feds open emergency energy options to blackout-plagued California

[Ed. – It’s not clear that federal money will be paying for anything, but it appears regulations are being suspended to allow Third World solutions. Ships’ auxiliary engines, for crying out loud.  What are we, Albania?]

The order suspends any laws, regulations or permits limiting the use of these power-generating machines. The order is set to expire just before midnight on September 13. …
