In Ontario, we are “dependent” on “nuclear” power. Since I don’t think it even exists, that leaves a problem…where does the power come from? The latest swindle is windmills. During our current heatwave, you may have noticed that the air stands still. Windmills don’t turn, unless of course they are using power, which they must have at all times to keep them from seizing. So, if they don’t supply baseline power, and don’t provide power in extreme heat or cold (when the wind is least likely to blow), what use are they? Who is making money from them? Their characteristics are very similar to nuclear, except this time, people can understand how they work and also see when they are generating power (or at least see when they turn).
He noted that as demand for power surged Monday due to the heat wave, the province’s wind turbines were producing only 2 megawatts of power at 10 a.m. By 11 a.m., it had risen to 3 megawatts.
Meanwhile, market demand for the day peaked at just under 26,000 megawatts.
