Problems of abundance. Texas wind more than grid can handle

On Feb. 28, at 12:54 pm, wind power in west Texas generated a whopping 22% of demand, a new record. But the grid couldn’t handle it, so they had to throttle back. Temporarily.

Texas is investing $5 billion to build more lines from wind farms to cities. They already have a self-contained grid and ranks #1 for states for wind power.

Texas gets it about renewable energy. Yes, Texas.
