And something else to chew on, per a microgrid specialist Duncan S. Campbell:
Recently analyzed public safety power shutoff impact for a small business. They intend to island with diesel to stay online. At conservative frequency/duration estimates, this will raise their electricity's CO2 footprint by ~10%.
Imagine hundreds of CA businesses doing this 😬

ICC-ES Issues ESR-4074 to Tesla, Inc. for Tesla Solar Roof System – “This report provides evidence that the Tesla Solar Roof System is in compliance with code requirements of the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) and California Building Code (CBC) and California Residential Code (CRC). The Tesla Solar Roof System is a complete roof covering system composed of electrically active building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) and (inactive) nonBIPV roof tiles, along with flashing and other accessories. The BIPV roof tiles generate electricity from the sun and include photovoltaic modules. The nonBIPV roof tiles are similar to the BIPV roof tiles, except that they do not include photovoltaic cells, and therefore do not generate electricity.” – Source – ICC-ES
