I dunno about that article. Just because electricity prices are generally dropping elsewhere doesn't mean they're paying more. The only criteria I'm interested in is what they were paying before "green energy", and after.

Everything else is obvious in the article; that renewables have to be used when it happens to be produced, and that the other energy producers have to shift their generation to accommodate that variable production, or that market pricing for energy may or may not be favorable to when it's produced.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
