Wind Exceeds Coal and Equals Nuclear over a day for the Second Time this Year.

UK Electricity Production to 6th Feb 2017.

On the Past Month chart,- third from the left - you can see that on 2nd Feb 2017. wind power - green - exceed coal - black - and virtually equalled nuclear - brown.
Whilst this is a major achievement, it was little more than momentary - wind is not and never will be a predictable source of electricity.
To make better use of it, we need to substantially shift the time we use electricity.
An excellent start is to stop using it for non-time sensitive devices -dishwashers, washing machines, tumble driers, immersion heaters - during the 3-8pm peak in UK
Happy timeshifting! Tell your friends you are doing it - it makes a difference.
