Wind power is not reliable, and thus requires 100% backup at all times. Consumers are paying for two types of electricity instead of just one.

    The high wind variability may also induce a loss in gas power plants efficiency since they have to compensate for, not only the consumption variability, but also the wind turbines (and solar panels by the way) production variability.
    Is this negative externality measured or estimated ? If so, how does it compare to the wind and solar electricity production ?

    Wind turbines are expensive power sources with low capacity factors, just the opposite of what economics tells you to base your system on.

    People only begin to listen when they are dying and suffering example look at CA, Democrat run cities- EU and UK – they have been either voting for not voting against polices that kill their paychecks or savings & its always too late to turn it around
    the media supposed reporters Care more in their hearts for the Planet yet deny FACTS – it all began with Al Gore power & $$$$ Grab and the only way people will begin to listen is when they cannot charge their I Phones
