According to the BBC News-Scotland, “Wind farms are much less efficient than claimed, producing below 10% of capacity for more than a third of the time, according to a new report.”
And here’s a shocker … “The analysis also suggested output was low during the times of highest demand.” In fact, “During each of the four highest peak demands of 2010, wind output reached just 4.72%, 5.51%, 2.59% and 2.51% of capacity, according to the analysis.”
No surprise really … Jon Boone told me that two years ago!
Now here’s the real kicker: “It is clear from this analysis that wind cannot be relied upon to provide any significant level of generation at any defined time in the future.”
Mr. Boon told said something similar, except he said wind will never be a viable source of energy. I bet he’s right again.
