Good God. Wind is up to near 6 gw. That’s just shy of 60% of its installed 9.5 gw capacity. Wonders will never cease. Last week it was fell to less than 1 gw for a day.
The average is 29% of installed capacity and the thing to remind people on good wind days is that in the absence of grid-scale storage (which is nowhere in sight) good days are useless because the lowest level of wind is the limiting factor, as it is with a fence around the stock, a flood levee and any kind of defensive wall.
As it happens the wind was down to 2% CP in WA at present and it has been under 4% since Friday morning.
