Wind Power Fails -- Again

From Germany via Jo Nova

On January 1st, Germany shut 11 coal fired plants with about 4.7GW of generating power — supposedly as a part of the Big Phaseout [of fossil fuel generation]. But eight days later the wind wasn’t blowing and, according to Pierre Goslin, the system got so unstable that the managers had to turn back on some of the coal power. This on-off-cycle repeated so many times that one large plant — Heyden  – was restarted six times in the next eight weeks.

This actually began before the Texas catastrophe. More wind power is a recipe for a third world power grid.
