Gov. Gain Newsom issued three proclamations of a state of emergency concerning electricity since June, waiving certain permitting requirements to allow the use of backup power generation and allowing additional capacity to ease electric demand on the grid. Newsom also gave the California Energy Commission permission to hasten amendments to existing power plant licenses and issue new licenses to emergency and temporary generators.
