Renewables aren't reliable enough to generate that much power

The mix of clouds and calm ensures that wind turbines and solar cells will produce electricity varying from many megawatts to 0 megawatts. In order to get any specified average amount of green electricity from either sun or wind, or both, 3-5 times that generation capacity must be installed. But when the wind blows and the sun shines, that excess electricity will blow the grid.

Weather vs Green New Deal

Lots of arguments have been made against the Green New Deal, and its goal of 100% carbon-free energy, including carbon-free electricity, by 2030. Most of these arguments have been political and economic. But the fundamental argument destroying 100% clean electricity is more basic. The weather won’t allow it!

Antrim man to record sound data on Antrim Wind project

“We decided it would make sense to get started as soon as possible so we can have a baseline bunch of data of infrasound for this area before turbines go into operation,” Block said. “When they do go into operation – which is at least a year off, according to their building schedule – we will be able to chart the differences.”

Unreliable wind is a poor energy source

It’s unfortunate that wind energy has ever risen in energy discussions, because it suffers a serious, fundamental and likely insoluble problem. This problem is sufficiently serious as to question whether wind energy should ever be considered to contribute meaningful electrical energy to New Hampshire.

House panel votes to eliminate RGGI energy-efficiency funds; Committee also supports lessening renewable energy standard

The NH House Science Technology and Energy Committee narrowly voted Tuesday to gut energy-efficiency funding through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and roll back the state’s renewable energy standard, in a move that one Republic denounced as partisan and a Democrat called “nuts.”

NH clean tech ‘confusion’ debated at Energy Summit; Conflicting legislative initiatives faulted by industry

Clean tech energy advocates – worried about the effect a cantankerous legislative process was having on the burgeoning technology in New Hampshire – may have been somewhat relieved by NH Sen. Jeb Bradley’s words at this year’s NH Energy Summit in Concord. “I am ready for a bit of a break on energy this year,” he said at the Tuesday gathering.
