To use your analysis of reliability, every day at this time I look at the http://reneweconomy.com.au/nem-watch/ website for power output by the various generation types from each state. For solar each day its the same old story.Yep, I get all that, but incidentally... come to think of it... RTT_Rules has confirmed that union militancy has not been a factor in widespread blackouts since renewables have been on the scene.Incidentally... come to think of it... my bus was late this morning - climate change? Harvey Weinstein sexually molested all of those women and got away with it for years - and now that I think of it, that could also be a pointer of the fact that we're undergoing climate change. My cat is sleeping later in the day - is that climate change do you think? Probably is, seems most unlike her so it's gotta be some kind of external variable I haven't observed yet... climate change.
Nahh, I'm just being facetious. I just wish that more of us that grace these pages had the capacity to differentiate between correlation and causation.
Large Solar is 2MW
Small Solar is 0MW
Hence I declare solar unreliable because each day at this time there is always only 2MW of output combined!
