Windpower Not Reliable Enough to Satisfy Electricity Needs?

Posted by the Asbury Park Press on 10/13/06


1. Power failures were narrowly averted in California recently when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ordered state agencies to reduce electricity consumption by 25 percent and many large industries and businesses agreed to voluntarily shut down.

2. To prevent future blackouts, there is a growing recognition that we need to bring back the only source of non-polluting, non-global-warming energy that can provide large amounts of reliable electricity.

3. California’s Rancho Seco and San Onofre 1 nuclear power plants were closed prematurely more than a decade ago

4. Instead of nuclear energy, the state has been relying more heavily on “renewable” energy sources, especially wind energy.

5. California’s power shortage confirms…wind energy’s credentials …are undercut by the reality of its unreliability.

6. Wind energy has many virtues. It’s clean. And the fuel is free. The Achilles’ heel of wind power is its intermittence. Sometimes the wind blows, sometimes it doesn’t.

7. Despite a massive investment in wind turbines wind energy contributes only 1 percent of all electricity in the United States.

8. Opposition to new wind projects is growing — not just in California but in Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, Virginia, Michigan, Kansas and New Jersey.

Personalities: James McGovern, Ocean Township, has been a consultant to government and industry on energy issues.
