RE: Terra-Gen Power closes funding for 'largest ever' wind farm
Until everyone gets smart and ties these projects (wind and solar) to another energy source like geothermal to cover the base load, they are only a partial solution. We can put massive amounts of power into the grid while these (wind and solar) are running only to find ourselves scrounging to power a light bulb the other 50% of the time. Until Washington gets a "Smart" energy policy that looks at the whole picture, we are still behind the curve to eliminate the fossil fuels. Terra-Gen also operates several Geothermal Facilities so they are trying, but in general, there is a lack of foresight when these projects are approved.
