Britain\’s freezing weather: worst snow for 50 years paralyses transport networks
And, umm, how are those windmills doing in keeping us all warm then?
Wind, in all its glory, managed to deliver a risible 0.4 percent – which is hardly even a rounding error and amounts to an insignificant contribution to the national electricity supply. Producing a mere 163 MW at around midnight last night, against an installed capacity of just over 4 GW, that represents a load factor of four percent.
Oh, you mean that cold winter snaps in the UK tend to coincide with a high pressure area and thus near zero wind?
Umm, didn\’t anyone check this out before we started down this path of covering the country with windmills?
