And, like a good right cross, it hurts when it hits.
Whoda thunk it? Unreliable and intermittent supplies of electricity might just need some kind of other supply to replace them when it is cloudy or not windy (or both)….
And when everyone shuts down the alternative sources of electricity you cannot import electricity from you neighbor….cause they have none to spare.
When Wind and Solar don’t get it, yer left with the old standby….dead dinosaurs….(’cause coal is Right Out)…oil or natural gas is the only way to supply large amounts of electricity (and heat) when those “renewables” fail…Such as wind and solar are wont to do.
If you can’t control it, you can’t rely on it.
