Evening
I expect it the wires near you that are not able to take the load. Near us they have put a generator in the sea but a wire came off it.
The Welsh government do not have the the money to lift and repair it. Over by you Ed they closed down a bio mass. The do gooders said it caused pollution.
They have now stopped the bio mass generators in Wales. Electric for cars and HS2 where will it come from High Tec Electrical people have told
the Government we will not have enough. But they takl to people with closed ears.

Apparently, we are buying wind power from the Irish Republic now. It's cheaper than what we can produce. No sign of Electric trains on the mid Wales line.

I think there are so many cock-ups with the implementation of innovation because of government targets. They get an idea, the minister say yes we will do this and so much will be in place by Huh?? And then they forge ahead to hit the target they've set, and some of the technology is useless. But it doesn't matter, we've achieved what we set out to do said the minister------more money wasted!
