The electric grid is sick and getting sicker.
There are 93 Reliability Standards that have been approved by FERC. It looks like none of them has anything to do with controlling the adverse impact of renewables upon reliability.
“Everything is tied to having electricity, and yet we’re not focusing on the reliability of the grid. That’s absurd, and that’s frightening.”
It has been one year since the devastating blackouts in Texas, so it’s time to examine whether Texas is in danger of repeating the disaster.
Wrecking the energy grid benefits no one but those seeking to cash in on wind and solar subsidies.

To function, power grids require demand to exactly match supply, which is an enormous problem for variable wind and solar power.
Solar energy has five fatal flaws for supplying 24/7 grid power.
