Weather, ERCOT, and Renewables

The Fallowing is a point made by a good friend of mine about the Texas grid this morning.

“Current demand this morning of 71648 mw and renewables along with batteries combine for 5003 mws yet the federal government wants to go strictly with renewables. Fossil and nuclear is the only thing keeping the grid from failing.”

Wind, Solar, and Batteries cannot replace base load thermal units. We need Gas, Coal, and Nuclear power!
