NT2272 : Nil Wind Day

Nil Wind Day
Nil Wind Day
For about the last three days the wind has been light or non-existent. I think this is the steam from the brewery, going almost straight up on a Sunday morning. What price your wind turbines now, Eck? You will still need backup power generating capacity for 100% of maximum demand on days like this, and on days when the winds are too strong and the turbines have to be stopped - or get damaged.

(For the uninitiated, 'Eck' is a nickname for Scotland's First Minister Alec Salmond, whose government seems hellbent on subsidising big business to cover the entire country with wind turbines and power lines to provide 'green' energy.)
