Hello @Tehran20,

The energy analyst specifically states that air conditioner use is what caused the overload of the region's power grid. This is the problem with answer choice A. Even if there are other significant drains on the electrical system, they did not cause the overload. Therefore, they do not explain how the blackouts will probably continue even if people reduce air conditioner use in their homes.

B is correct, because it explains how reducing air conditioner use in homes is unlikely to solve the problem. If businesses and factories don't cut back, the blackouts will probably continue.
