    not really. its quite a complex bidding market

    lets say you and i are generators. they need 2 units of power

    you bid 30$ for 1 unit of power and i bid 35$ for one unit for power.

    we both get paid 35$ each.

    How much backup must the system have to cover peak demand time when you can only rely on the wind proportion to cover 6% of capacity.

    It boggles the mind that the wind promoters are allowed to sell anything they produce but have no responsibility to provide electricity 24-7.

    This should have been written into the original legislation but then nobody would have invested in wind to get the subsidies would they. Money for jam.

    State owned entities that had responsibility for generation, distribution and retail (and redundancy planning) were sold off.

    Its open slather these days.

    Wind energy 6.1% at 3PM 10/9/2019 for entire east coast.
    what was that about the wind always blowing somewhere, in this case probably too hard.

    Thats a part of the way energy production needs to evolve. Rather than slagging it off, people should be celebrating that fossil fueled power plants were able to be relaxed for a period of time. Same with Solar, if the sun is shining, then thats great if they can back off the power plants through the day. Its still a win for the air that people breath.
