Wind power craps out in the heat

Article

We are totally roasted, and not a speck of wind!  No big surprise here.  When I used to work, there was this big wind turbine at Pickering, and it never moved all summer.  Tomorrow it's supposed to hit 37, and I hope the grid holds.

In fact, here in Ontario, the wind only blows when nobody wants the electricity.  If you matched true earnings (based on the spot price), I'm sure that wind farms have the highest price/earnings ratio in the world, even higher than Apple!

I think Ontario should introduce time of use payment for these green act contracts that pays in a ratio to our time of use billing.
