China’s energy crisis is raising concerns that California’s ambitious green energy goals could be at risk, experts say.

The world’s second-largest economy is facing a severe power shortage that has led to blackouts and factory shutdowns. The crisis is being caused by a number of factors, including a surge in demand for electricity, a shortage of coal, and government policies that have limited the development of renewable energy.

California is heavily reliant on solar and wind power to meet its green energy goals. However, these renewable energy sources are intermittent, and California often has to import electricity from other states to meet its needs.

If China’s energy crisis continues, it could lead to higher electricity prices in California and make it more difficult for the state to meet its green energy goals.
