PG&E buys power from a number of different sources including coal, hydro, natural gas, nuclear, wind and solar. The power may come from load following plants, peaker plants and merchant generators. PG&E's electric grid has evolved over the decades to become more complex than a single mind can comprehend. Some people say that this grid may become more delicate rather than more robust as more renewable energy is added in the suburbs. From PG&E's view, solar PV owners aren't paying their fair share of maintaining the distribution portion of the electrical grid. Homeowners with PV may counter that they sell electricity at 8 cents a kilowatt hour and must buy it at 14 cents per KwH.Either way, the grid in Northern California will continue to evolve.
