Windfarms, the future…


In a Telegraph article today, they talk about having to switch off Windfarms, as not to do so would overload the system. On the positive side, this means that windfarms are producing too much electricity, but apparently at the wrong times.

In this high technology world, surely we can come up with a device to store ‘bulk’ electricity, to enhance the use of windfarms, allowing other non-green forms of generation to be scaled back. The windfarms would not have to be switched off, every amp/watt of electricity generated could be used and the country would be greener.

It would also save the money that at present is being paid to electricity generating companies to stop producing at certain times.

p.s. if this technology does exist, why aren’t we using it?
