Exactly why wind power is too often useless

After posting the submission by Tony from Oz re Queensland Govt plans for 50% renewables by 2030 – I wondered what NemWatch shows now. The chart below shows next to zero effective wind across Tasmania, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.

So in our future renewables nirvana what would we do at times like now? Turn off most of Australia and all just sit around waiting for wind. Or do we keep sufficient fossil fuel powered generators waiting around to substitute for wind when required? Who pays for that? We will pay have no doubt. Vote 1ALA and always put Greens last.

Just noticed this classic water news from Perth – global HQ of the rain-denial-desalination-promotion movement.

Percent rain all Australia so far in May – Percent rain just WA so far in May.
Here is a rain history for Perth catchments – just the runoff season. Pretty good rain on average.
