If there's one thing I don't mind, its facts. I've been open about my position on wind power and its usefulness (or lack thereof) in generating electricity for Ontario. So I don't mind looking and publicizing facts about wind power.
So in that trend, I'll be posting data taken from the IESO public reports concerning wind generation in Ontario every weekend.
For the week of February 16 - 23, there were 1085 MW of installed capacity of wind generation.
The maximum amount of electricity generated by wind at any point in time in that week was 565 MW.
The mimimum amount of electricity generated by wind at any point in time in that week was a meagre 22 MW.
The average capacity factor over the week was 20.84%.
The graph tells the rest of the story.
