Wind and solar realities
- Mar 16, 2021 1:35 pm GMT
The Texas blackouts made everyone aware of the risks associated with wind and solar, as well as bad management by ERCOT.
This video will describe two of the important shortcomings of wind and solar.
These are the facts that exist today.
This video explains two of the issues concerning the management of our electric grid.
There are other important issues affecting how the electric grid is being managed.
The first book describing these issues is The Looming Energy Crisis, Are Blackouts Inevitable, highlighted by the video.
The second book is Shorting the Grid, by Meredith Angwin.
Both books explain how RTO/ISOs are manipulating the bidding process for determining which sources of electricity are used each day on the grid. And how the bidding process is forcing nuclear power, coal and natural gas power plants from the grid. And how wind and solar are being used inappropriately in reserve margins.
The Texas disaster has been a warning we should take seriously.
