What jaagu doesn't acknowledge is that to do renewables, you have to build BOTH the windmills AND the gas turbines if you want a reliable power supply.

===================================================

What SP doesn't acknowledge is that we have plenty of existing power generation (nuclear, coal, gas, hydro, geothermal and biomass) to build wind turbines without the need for need for gas turbines. Maybe in 2030 or 2040 we will need to start to make sure we have enough backup power. But for the next 10-20 years there is no problem.

The problem is in the heads of those folks who want to continue believe that we need unsafe, dirty and expensive coal and nuclear.
