Heck, it will need 10x that to meet anywhere need 50% renewable ........but of course the charts show that in the summer time, WV generates 1/3rd the wind power than it does in the winter time....go back and check the links.....Which means you need to build 85% of total needs with NG......and it sits at 25% in the winter, spikes to 80% in the summer, and some days maybe be 90% of total power used that day.


You claim WV needs 10x of 5MW or 50MW of wind to provide 50% renewable.

But only 7.5 MW of coal power currently is used by WV for 95% of electricity consumed in WV.

Seems like a lot of BS in your numbers.
