Back in the day I did some electric utility resource planning. It helps me understand the uselessness of wind and solar.
First, coal and nuclear plants are “base load.” They are priced cheap, but they are designed to be on all the time. You can’t throttle them up and down on short notice.
Then there are plants that can be throttled up and down. You can do that somewhat with combined-cycle gas turbine plants, and pretty well with straight gas turbine plants. These are priced higher, because more flexible.
We also had hydro plants on the Columbia. These can be turned on and off at will, but are priced for the amount of energy (i.e. water in the river) in dry years. In wet years, you have “secondary energy” much beloved of aluminum plants, because the energy is much cheaper, even though not available in dry years.
But wind and solar are not reliable, because not necessarily available. So they must be backed up by gas-turbine plants. They work great if you are Google with a server farm that has diesel backup generators. I think that Google has a server farm in Oregon right next to a dam. And right down the highway from a bunch of wind turbines.
If you are a ruling-class administrator and you do not understand what I just wrote, then you are the problem.
