Wind does not shut down several times daily? Especially those >2MW mills that are hundreds of meters tall almost always have enough wind to keep producing at least some power uninterrupted for months on end.
At least over here they do.

Our polders have been kept dry by wind mills for over 4 centuries. There have been floods by dike breakthroughs, but never by rain and no wind.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
