Jaak:"WV has plenty of good quality wind to power 5GW of new capacity by 2030 and another 5GW of new capacity by 2035. "

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.

- -----

WV area - 24,230 sq miles

TX area - 268,000 square miles

Population of TX 28.5 million

Population of WV - 1.79 million

Therefore there are fewer people per square mile in WV......than there are in TX.....Texas has 10x the are and 14 times the population (not counting 2 million new 'migrants' a year flooding in......

WV is less populated per square mile than TX - average .
