Wind 16.07%, 1 – 30 mph, Wales 7 – 30 mph, 0717 local time

The effective wind speed in the Betws area now is 8 mph, (a mean speed of 17 mph minus 9 mph needed to start the turbines), so a negligible amount of power is being produced by the Betws turbines, even in the middle of a windy front. The wind here never reaches the steady 20 – 40 mph needed for any kind of effective power generation from wind turbines. Solar is negligible at 2.17%, hydro has almost disappeared entirely at 0.05%. Nuclear is flat out and gas is approaching full capacity. It is a rainy morning so the solar panels dumped on Mawr are producing nothing at all. It is obvious that what is needed is tidal power combined with ES and LENR.
