Awfully still isn't it?

As another day dawns in the south of the UK with no discernible wind, I thought that I would take a look at NETA's statistics and see that wind farms are producing negligible levels of power.
Currently Wind Power is accounting for 0.4% of generated power, although it reaches the heady heights of 0.8% for the last 24 hours. Coal, gas and nuclear power stations work and their power generation is controllable. Wind power's power generation depends upon nature and that means no production on cold days when power demand for heating is high and often over-supply on breezy summer nights when power demand is relatively low.

The UK's countryside is being despoiled to satisfy political ambitions and so as to further the warmist agenda. Please can we have some sense about this matter in the future.

During the period from 07.00 - 07.30 30/12/10 the output has been 0.1%, just 47MW of a demand of 36,103MW. This from a rated capacity of all 3,149 (at 1/12/2010} of just over 5,000MW (5GW)

Is it any wonder why Millers no longer use Windmills?
