Countless U.S. homes may see a loss of electricity during the eclipse on Aug. 21.
The astronomical event might cause a loss in solar energy production enough to power some 7 million homes, reports Bloomberg.
According to U.S. government information, California provides 40% of the solar energy in the U.S.. The country will see its solar energy generation capacity reduced by 70 percent between 9:02 a.m. and 11:54 a.m. local time on the day of the eclipse. The loss will also change across the remainder of the U.S.
To fill the energy gap during this time, solar reliant grids may turn to natural gas plants and hydro plants for energy, reports Vox.
