Wind 6.75%, 0 – 17 mph, Wales 5 – 9 mph. 0729 local time

The wind speed in the Betws area now is 5 mph, not enough to start the giant wind turbines (7 – 9 mph needed) so they are producing nothing as usual. They are therefore a total failure. Throughout Wales the wind industry is producing nothing, because the wind speed is only 5 – 9 mph. If the entire industry were demolished the grid would be better off, (much more stable) and there would be no difference to energy generation. Coal is being run flat out now, so the wind industry does not save on coal burning. Hydro is a pathetic 1.31%. It should be increased to essentially 100% as soon as possible.
