2021-09-30 Offshore Wind Blows 24 hrs / 365 days

There are some renewables that are almost 100% reliable. One is geothermal power. Another might be offshore wind turbines. Quote: from description in YouTube video << Offshore wind farms solve one of renewable energy’s biggest problems: unreliability.

2021-09-05 California Floating Offshore Wind

Guardian article about offshore floating wind turbines. There needs to be a huge amount of wind turbines installed by 2030. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/aug/29/floating-wind-turbines-ocean-renewable-power

2021-08-24 California’s Offshore Wind Benefits

This short synopsis of a report says that California offshore wind has a high 50% capacity factor and “could help solve California’s reliability problem”. But is California’s electricity unreliable? I didn’t think so. What’s remarkable is that offshore wind is shown to be blowing steadily 24 hours; I’m sure there are times when the wind
