    Wind energy protects consumers

    Michael Goggin, May 2, 2014 (The Hill)

    “…Wind energy repeatedly proved its reliability and value this winter by protecting consumers across the U.S. from fuel shortages and extreme spikes in energy prices…Early on January 6, the Nebraska Public Power District met record winter electricity demand with wind energy providing about 13 percent of its electricity…Later on January 6, the grid operator for the Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes states had 3,000 MW of wind output when it faced its most severe challenge of the winter due to the unexpected failure of 20 percent of its conventional power plants in the cold…[When extreme cold weather caused a natural gas shortage in] California on February 6, wind energy provided the state with around 2,000 MW at the time of peak demand, with wind output above 2,500 MW for most of the rest of the evening, allowing the grid operator to avoid calling an energy emergency alert…Wind energy provided 4.86 percent of all electricity produced in [January], a remarkable feat given that the sustained record cold caused January to set a new record for winter electricity demand…” click here for more
