"For every wind turbine brought online, a more stable backup power source must be found." 

-  Michael Milstein, Bonneville Power Administration, Oregon Public Broadcasting, June 11, 2009

Wind energy is not reliable despite what the industrial wind industry promotes. To prevent a power outage, there must be a stable back up power plant available to pick up the generation that is lost when wind fluctuates. The back up power must be regulated — revved up or down — in sync with the wind causing inefficiency and adding to operating costs.

FAQ about output

New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), the state’s power grid regulator, sharply criticized Cuomo’s plan to boost state green energy use, saying that it could cause blackouts and would make it hard to ensure reliable electricity.

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is currently investigating how green energy undermines the reliability of the electrical grid.
