What were you thinking Texas? Half of Texas Wind Turbines Freeze, Hurting Electricity Output. Why would a state with so much oil rely on what’s no more than a high school Science project?
Ice storms knocked out nearly half the wind-power generating capacity of Texas on Sunday as a rare deep freeze across the state locked up turbine towers while driving electricity demand to record levels, the state’s grid operator reported.
How stupid to use something so unreliable. Guess what they’re doing to unfreeze them? Using a petroleum based spray to DE-ICE them. Oil again saves the day.
