… When I was a young engineer, and if somebody asked us, ‘Is it possible to integrate more than 5% of solar and wind power into the system?’ all experienced engineers said ‘No way. We will face serious problems and reliability will go to hell.’ We have today 40 GW of wind and 40 GW of solar and roughly 10 GW of other renewables, mainly biomass.
Oh, yeah, Massachusetts, if you are so smart as you say you are, why are you so timid and can’t do this? Why not “blow up the market”? You claim to believe in market forces, no? Or do you believe in “the market” only when it is convenient?
