Texas Wind Is More Than Grid Can Handle

Texwind-2010

While the focus continues to be on expanding means and mexico pharmacy methods for generating electricity from renewable sources, the limits of the existing grid to handle that generated power and distribute it to discount viagra without prescription where it is try it levitra in india needed are beginning to show.

Last weekend in Texas, wind power reached a record high point of 6,242 MW represented 22% of demand. That's fantastic news, and we love to see that kind of records being broken. However, utility officials were forced to curtail wind power generation "because the www.expert-nett.fr supply of electricity outstripped the capacity of canada's 1 pharmacy lines to move the pfizer sales of viagra in canada power to urban areas such as Dallas-Fort Worth."

Production needs to continue to http://www.markwellgroup.com.au/generic-levitra increase. But this points out what may become a more frequent problem, and dealing with the grid cannot be forgotten either.

We'll pay you to take our electricity!
written by Carl Hage, March 04, 2010
Transmission lines are a big problem for wind development. I don't really see much progress in this area, and there is a "not in my back yard" opposition in general. Unlike nuclear, there is no shortage of investors willing to fund wind energy projects. Supposedly there is 300GW in the queue waiting for transmission lines.

Before, the limit was reached on transmission from wind energy parks, and they ended up bidding to sell power at negative cost (they paid a utility to take the power). Since they get a small clean-energy credit (1.8c/kWh), paying 1c for the utility to take the power is better than letting them run idle!

I'm sure they'll find a way to work it out. I guess that's how powerful the wind is.

Evan says: "I'm sure they'll find a way to work it out." You betcha. It looks like Texas will remain the great American energy state.
Several days ago The Energy Bulletin posted a story quoting The Texas banker Matt Simmonds suggesting we build huge wind farms off the lowest price for cialis State of Maine along with facilities to www.deboerderijhuizen.nl desalinate the Atlantic water and electrolize that into methane. Then build distribution pipelines from there.
We already have an abundance of gas lines from Texas to all points North. I should think it would be easier to pump and pipe water from the Gulf of Mexico to the West Texas wind farms. That way they would not disturb one of the great fishing grounds of the world And avoid the famous Maine coast perfect storms.
It has been written that there could be an overabundance of viagra buy now electricity produced from wind in this country so why not get get your eggs out of one basket?

Mail order battery recharging service?
written by simon, March 07, 2010
Texas could accept discharged batteries for recharging. This would effectively bypass the grid because the batteries would be transported by road, rail and air.

As long as the turn around time wasn't excessive, people would use the service because they would be helping to save the planet.

CREZ lines
written by Citizen Sarah, March 08, 2010
Of course "they'll find a way to work it out" -- are in the process now of building competitive renewable energy zones (crez) to increase wind generation capacity to 18,456 MW.

Lack of Transmission Lines Capacity
written by Richard Fletcher, March 11, 2010
It does not surprise me that transmission lines capacity is an issue since up to 10 percent of electricity is lost while being transported over such lines, making it that much more important to buy xanax online generate closer to the user.smilies/smiley.gif

Give renewable energy priority access to the grid
written by David Eisenberg, March 11, 2010
A key reason that Denmark and Germany have been able to lead the world in the development and implementation of wind and obtain a prescription for viagra solar technology is that they have a law that gives renewable sources priority access to the grid. This does a couple of crucial things - first, it maximizes the amount of levitra tablets renewable energy on the grid at any given time, since renewables will displace non-renewable power. Second, it completely shifts the investment landscape, making investment in non-renewable generation riskier than renewables. It is a simple thing in theory, but challenging given the politics and power of non-renewable energy stakeholders. But it might be the wow it's great price cialis single most effective change and the most straightforward way to eliminate this problem and shift the whole market.

A Good Problem?
written by Global Patriot, March 14, 2010
Anytime the generation of clean energy exceeds expectations there is a silver lining in that it tells the rest of the world that the technology works and the infrastructure needs to be upgraded to handle it.

The issue isn't that the grid can't handle it, but the wind farms aren't yet CONNECTED to the grid for the DFW area. The main wind farm outside amarillo is a good 5 hour drive from the metroplex, mostly straight ranchland. Until it is connected (ETA 2015 from what I've heard) then turbine's energy doesn't go far.

And shipping batteries is viagra online no prescription a terrible idea? Wind energy cuts down on air emissions, that's why its "clean". If truckloads of batteries and planes were flown out to the middle of nowhere, or anywhere for that matter, it would completely negate the www.pneumapaniagua.es issue.

Infrastructure is the main issue here, the govt. needs more money invested in infrastructure, not *other* things.

The grid limitations shouldn't be a issue. The wind power should have #1 priority over all other forms of power generation. Not only for the source of canadian healthcare pharmacy power but also for infastructure setup by the utilities to distribute the power.

Really a good thing?
written by Shafe, May 12, 2010
The South Texas Project is expected to begin construction on two new 1.35GW advanced boiling water reactors in 2012 to begin producing power in 2016. When you look at the total nameplate capacity of Texas wind generators (9.4GW┬▒) multiplied by the capacity factor determined by ERCOT (8.7%) you get an actual generation of about 0.82GW. That's 0.82GW of unreliable power that has to purchasing cialis with next day delivery be backed up by natural gas powered spinning reserve, that takes up thousands of acres in remote areas requiring hundreds of miles of new transmission lines, that spoils natural vistas, that irritates nearby residents, and that is a danger to wildlife. Compare that to over 3 times that amount of actual generating capacity added to an existing power plant in one shot, not far from the end users, with grid capacity already in place, and no need to attenuate for variable voltages and frequencies from thousands of individual generators spread across the state.

If you want to displace a polluter like the nearly 2GW Monticello coal plant, you could build two reactors like this with 500MW to spare, or you could build over 5,000 3MW turbines and www.grantontrailers.com hope the www.umlauf.de wind keeps up. Why are we bending over backwards for wind when safe, reliable nuclear is so available?
