It was interesting for me to read an article about the woes that the state of TN was having with its power deficit; well, which state doesn’t?

What however actually got my eyes open wide was the following statement “A few months ago, the wind power generation in Tamilnadu touched 2000 MW…During Aug 2009, the generation dropped from 2000 MW to 20 MW and then increased to about 1000 MW…”

Now, I am not sure if there’s a typo there; if there isn’t, it’s kind of terrible. Output decreasing from 2000 MW one day to 20 MW a few days later…

Such dramatic variations could make wind power unfit as a baseload source for ages to come!
