    As I'm on a trust board of an electrical coop, I can say that that is largely propaganda. There is a limit to what electric producers can do with most renewables. as they do't produce consistently particularly solar.

    Additionally the coal plants have been moving with conversion hardware to natural gas. So despite the fact that renewables increased the last administration (in the US) required conversions. With the plants I have dealings with that reduced efficiency by about 20%. So despite the fact that renewables have provided a larger percentage, it is not as large an increase as it looks.

    Here locally the old fashioned renewable (hydroelectric) and nuclear have made available kws for sale to fill in when the solar goes to sleep.

    I would LOVE to have an intelligent discussion about this, but post#6 invokes the word “administration” and policy. They are as political as can be.

    Hence...
