Why is grid diversification so important?

Diversifying the electricity grid is crucial in improving resilience to external shocks. Depending on one resource in one location creates risk – a failure in the resource itself, the equipment or the infrastructure connecting electricity generation to users means extended grid outages. Utilizing diverse electricity resources distributed in diverse locations makes us better able to withstand significant weather, economic, or health events.
