92 Continuous Days of LoLo Wind - That's EverSoLo Electricity from Wind Turbines!
From the same website, it's possible to calculate the average power over that period. I worked it out. It was:
A Capacity Factor of 13.4%
It's also possible to calculate that Gridwatch Templar monitors 78% of the 11,183 MW capacity shown in a report on this webpage: renewableUK Reports Scroll down to 'Wind Energy in the UK 12 November 2014'' (Page 15/Totals/UK wide).
From this webpage: renewableUK Wind Energy Database it is possible to calculate that the average wind turbine is 2 MW in size. So the number of turbines monitored by Gridwatch Templar is 78% of 11,183 MW ÷ 2 MW
That's 4,361 Wind Turbines
So - FOR 3 MONTHS - They each supplied: 269 kW
That's just about enough to boil: 90 Kettles
400 feet High and 1000 tonnes of Concrete and Steel
To Boil 90 Kettles!
At what point do Politicians recognise the Societal and Environmental Insanity of this technology?
