6:05 pm
on its moss landing storage facilities, made up of 256 tesla mega packs that act as one large battery for the state power grid. >> off site from here and sometimes many ways away is a solar plant that's generating right now. that, in turn, should go to a customer. if it's not going to a customer, then they can say elk horn, start absorbing that power, breathe it in. >> reporter: when it started breathing a few weeks ago, it immediately became pg&e's largest storage project. >> 182.5 megawatts that elk horn provides can power 250,000 homes. typical utility installations have been in the 10, maybe 50 megawatts was a big one. 182 megawatts is an extraordinary project. >> we are able to store some energy, but even -- even with a facility of that size, it's still a relatively small amount of energy. >> reporter: lucas davis is a
6:06 pm
professor and researcher at uc berkeley's energy institute. he says a site like this is progress. the challenge is scale. >> these lithium-ion batteries, they've come down in cost a lot, and that's what's allowing evs to happen. but to do this in an electricity market is just a whole other scale. we use vast amounts of electricity with air-conditioning, other forms of electricity. so we're not anywhere near having enough storage to smooth out daily, let alone seasonal variability in electricity supply. >> reporter: we should add there's an entirely different battery project on the plant property. it's owned by a third party. it might be the largest of its kind in the world, and it's had some problems. it has been offline. the pg&e tesla project, however, said to be up and running as expected. we're here in moss landing. wilson walker, kpix 5. new at 6:00, a live look at the state capitol where lawmakers are trying to revive
6:07 pm
the salmon population by buying water rights from farmers. the new plan in the state legislature would allow the government to purchase the senior water rights with the goal of bolstering the $900 million salmon industry. but farmers believe there are better ways to revive the population. >> those are private water rights that are owned by farmers, and if we don't have water, we're not going to have food. so you're not a willing seller until they take your water away from you and you can't make a living on your land. we have $97 billion in surplus here in the capital, and we're not putting money towards building reservoirs. >> the details such as how much land would be bought or where exactly it would be are still being hashed out. still ahead on kpix 5 and cbs news bay area, elon musk threatens to scrap his deal with twitter. what he's accusing the social media company of hiding. plus, the race to become the state's top prosecutor. a look at the candidates for attorney general. lots of sunshine to start

>> reporter: capitalizing on viral videos of violent attacks from the bay area to southern california and high-profile smash-and-grabs throughout the state over the last couple years, challengers gunning to unseat current attorney general rob bonta tout crime is out of control. >> i think there's no question that we are seeing violent crime on the rise. we're seeing, at least in law enforcement, a lot of guns in the hands of felons and people that should not have them. we're seeing rampant theft. >> reporter: sacramento district attorney anne marie schubert, also known as the golden state killer d.a. who helped lock up serial murderer joseph deangelo is running as an independent after leaving the republican party in 2018. she believes the criminal justice system is in a state of chaos. >> we've got criminals that are running amok. we've got people getting out of prison early. you've got people out of l.a. that are toasting the district attorney that are in prison because they think they're going to get out of prison early.
6:11 pm
>> is that unique to california, though, or across the country? are we seeing that in other states like new york? >> there's no question that we've seen a rise in violent crime across the country. i think the issue is how do those states deal with that? >> reporter: the longtime prosecutor believes lawmakers over the last decade have adopted pro-criminal types of efforts, including prop 47 that changed the felony threshold for property crime, making anything less than $950 in theft a misdemeanor. republican candidate nathan hoffman also heavily critical of prop 47, says he's the law and order candidate who believes safety and security have gone off the california cliff. >> criminals are getting the sense in this state that crimes don't have consequences, that you literally can commit the crime, even get arrested in the morning and get bail and be out by the afternoon. >> reporter: the former u.s. assistant attorney general says a combination of weakened laws and local county prosecutors not enforcing lower-level crimes has led to the current state of affairs. >> i would make sure that people
6:12 pm
understand that crimes do have consequences, and that does not mean to go back to the other end of the pendulum where you go through mass incarceration and throw away the key on everybody who commits any crime. >> reporter: hoffman supports more funding for police to go after repeat offenders. the l.a. criminal defense attorney wants to sponsor a proposition to reverse 47 and help pass what he would call the serial theft law in which a third property crime under $950 in 60 days becomes a felony. bonta was appointed attorney general last year by governor newsom. the former state assemblyman from alameda turned high-profile prosecutor has been on a media blitz, touting his efforts against everything from plastic pollution to gang violence and retail crime. >> we have cases where people are acting in concert, up to 80 people with weapons, with ghost guns, with pepper spray, with other weapons, stealing up to $1 million. >> reporter: bonta says data shows crime overall is at historical lows. his campaign says he's focused on holding especially those in

6:14 pm
but musk has called that number into question and demanded data to do his own verification. today twitter stock dropped 2% following the musk announcement. time to bring paul in, and i guess the question is how hot is it going to get? >> depends on where you are as it always does in the bay area. temperatures are going to be way above average later this week. thursday, friday, and saturday, a three-day warm spell around the bay and along the coast. a heat wave farther inland. high pressure just beginning to take over in the upper levels of the atmosphere. this is going to get stronger over the next few days and that's going to be responsible for the heat wave by thursday, friday, and saturday. storm system way out over the pacific is eventually going to crack that heat wave by sunday. it's just a three-day stretch of warm weather. we're just in the beginning stages of this right now. temperatures inland reached up to the low to mid 80s today. right now we've got 60s around the bay and a mix of 70s and 80s farther inland. 63 downtown. still holding on to 82 degrees right now in concord. not seeing any fog at the golden gate just yet but i think that
6:15 pm

6:16 pm
going to top out in the low to mid-80s. mid-60s in san francisco. low 70s for oakland. low 60s right along the coast but all these temperatures pretty close to normal for this time of year. even the hottest spots only about four or five degrees above average. the heat really begins to build on thursday. that's kind of transition day with the heat wave peaking inland on friday with triple digit high temperatures for inland parts of the east bay and the north bay. then we back off by about five degrees for the first half of the weekend. the heat wave comes to an end on sunday with the storm system clipping us to the north. the bulk of the energy is going to miss us. there's an outside chance of a shower north of the golden gate saturday night into sunday. it's not going to be a repeat of what we had this past saturday night and sunday. temperatures are going to warm up the next several days. friday the warmest day. upper 70s in san francisco. low 80s in oakland. mid-90s in san jose before a return to near normal temperatures by sunday and monday. the hottest spots will be inland in the east bay and the north bay with high temperatures
