out. energy usage dropped dramatically. as temperatures rose across the bay area tuesday, old all-time records begin to fall. extreme heat causing dismayed not just for local residents but also for the state's power grid, prompting warnings from officials pleading for people to save energy. >> the demand for power on the california grid is expected to be an all-time high, and we have entered the most challenging day so far of this unprecedented heatwave. tim: the state has been here before, most recently in 2020 when governor newsom pledged to up the infrastructure to make sure rolling blackouts were a thing of the past. >> i'm the governor, i'm ultimately accountable and will ultimately take responsibility, have taken responsibility to immediately address this issue and move forward to make sure this never happens again. tim: what happened? according to state senator josh becker, california has made big improvements to the grid over the last several years. he compares the added
energy to the output of the state's power plants. >> we added power over the last year. two or three diablo canyons over the last three years. tim: climate change continues to accelerate. experts say the impact could outweigh the current upgrades. >> we have to do the energy planning and build energy transmission at a faster rate so we can get the energy from where it is produced to where it needs to go. tim: why but continue to transition to cleaner energy and a more robust power grid, central becker will relate on a multi-pronged approach, hoping that one day blackouts will become a thing of the past. >> this is in all of the above strategy. we are seeing a 24/7 clean grid is a reliable and robust grid. tim: it is important to note that while we avoided the widespread rolling blackouts,
