Wind 3.71%, 2 – 29 mph, Wales 3 – 5 mph, 0746 local time

The average wind speed in the Betws area is now 5 mph, so the useless turbines are becalmed as usual, producing no power because it takes 9 mph to start them. If they are turning over it is the result of power taken from the grid, presumably to maintain them. They are the first negative power stations in history, a ghastly failure. Solar is 0.24% because for the first time in a week there has been a little sun. Usually solar is 0.00%, another total failure (University of Sheffield estimate on . So the solar panels dumped on Mawr by Swansea County Councils are totally useless. They are incredibly ugly. Hydro is a pathetic 1.8%, another complete failure despite the fact that the tide four miles away is the second highest in the world. Nuclear and gas are flat out, and coal is about half capacity. It is clear that the grid still relies almost completely on coal, gas and nuclear in the age of humbug.
