• Thermal or hydro turbines are nothing more than tools in the arsenal of the ISO/RTO operators. Generators themselves have no direct knowledge, communication with downstream customers, and would not adjust accordingly without the request of the ISO.

    If we are able to integrate DC transmission into our primarily AC transmission & distribution systems, there’s little grounds to suggest solar or wind behind a DC inverter cannot be integrated. It doesn’t mean it is ‘easy’, but there are no technological incompatibilities unable to be designed around.

    Frequency regulation is a technological consideration, much less the mountain it’s turned into to justify the 100% fulfillment of our electricity needs from spinning turbines, regardless fuel source.
