😂 to all you fools that said gas ⛽️ and oil was outdated, HOW THOSE wind turbines working out for y’all

According to ERCOT, almost 25% of the grid is wind power, FWIW.

Hate seeing you peddle inaccurate info whilst you're on yet another tirade about people "lying." lol

I believe the 25% number is all renewables. Or the discrepancy could be in their winter generating capacity from wind. Either way, I'm right.

In fact, wind energy accounts for 10% of ERCOT’s winter power-generating capacity, said Daniel Cohan, an environmental engineering professor at Rice University. The rest depends primarily on thermal sources like natural gas, coal and nuclear.

I’d say one plus is it’s helping me learn how to function without a phone in my hand every five minutes. I’ve solved my Rubik’s cube and learned how to play Uno so it could be much worse.

Got through it without losing power or water.  We had a -18 degree wind chill here in Ft. Worth last Monday.  I had to wear two t-shirts, long pants, and socks with my flip-flops.

According to the actual ERCOT spokesman in the article,  24.8% is the percentage of wind energy currently on the grid. It's currently winter, correct? 

Sounds like you and Mr. Cohan are both a little confused. 

Again. 🤷‍♂️

Incredibly obtuse and dishonest as usual.

Currently on the grid does not have anything to do with the season.

Glad you agree that you're being obtuse and dishonest as usual. 

According to ERCOT, 24.8% of the state's current energy during the winter months is provided by wind...not 10%. 

 

Carry on. 🤷‍♂️

I had 8 straight days of gains and now am working on my 3rd straight day of losses.   

I added more shares to TAN on the dip.  

You guys need to take a look at MARA. I bought at 32 and have been riding the wave... Waiting for it to dip around $35 then buying a lot more shares.

There's no evidence that the word current means seasonally-adjusted. In fact the available evidence suggests that it merely means that's what the current grid is physically composed of.

From your own source:

wind.PNG.78eb96187c33a227ec3bde83db2d2778.PNG

So that 23% number seems very likely to be the standard percentage of power from other renewables just as I said. No evidence that it's seasonally-adjusted for winter.

In fact, the actual main argument is about which source is most responsible for the outage. There, too, I seem to be more right than you.

These failing sources largely included nuclear plants, coal plants and thermal energy generators. Frozen wind turbines were a factor, too, but Woodfin said wind shutdowns accounted for less than 13% of the outages.

Shoulder shrug indeed.

Andy is shucking and jiving because zulu pointed out that his 10% number was bullshit. 🤣

And after calling zulu obtuse and dishonest he comes back at zulu with numbers that still do nothing to support his 10% figure. 🤡

 

Bless Andy's heart.

zulu1128 just pulling stuff straight out of his ass crack as usual.

Texas largely relies on natural gas for power. It wasn’t ready for the extreme cold.

It’s estimated that about 80% of the grid’s capacity, or 67 gigawatts, could be generated by natural gas, coal and some nuclear power. Only 7% of ERCOT’s forecasted winter capacity, or 6 gigawatts, was expected to come from various wind power sources across the state.

Still zero evidence for his claim that current means seasonally-adjusted. Meanwhile, all the evidence is to the contrary.

He should definitely stick to processing unemployment claims…engineering doesn’t seem to be in his wheelhouse. 😂

 

Apparently he wasn't very good at that either.

I think he spent/spends most of his time at the gubmint unemployment office data-mining this board desperately searching for arguments to fill up his spare time, which appears to take up the bulk of his life.

zulu1128 pointed out something that was irrelevant to the issue.

And then he just made up a claim that the 24% was seasonally-adjusted.

So he's basically lying like you.

I already posted this stuff.

You're lost.

The argument isn't about the standard grid. It's about the winter capacity which zulu1128 refuses to acknowledge is significantly less than 24%.

It's like talking to a toady or something

Oh wait.

That's exactly what it is.

The 24% is not seasonally-adjusted.

You've provided no evidence to support your claim whereas I've posted many sources to support mine.

No, dumbass.

It's higher.

In November and December it was nearly 28%.

It's lowest in the hottest months.
