Misinformation Not Helping Conversion

“I don’t think the technology is quite there yet so we can rely in wind solely.”

That’s never been a serious suggestion of anyone, however. SaskPower makes that same absurd claim about solar. More common are plans involving hydro, wind, and solar. Not even coal is useful for 100% of our power (because of the deadly air pollution it generates).
60% wind might be possible, though.

Can we change in time, given misinformation in our media?

“Despite many believing that wind power is the answer to climate change, it comes with one major disadvantage; Right now there is no way to store the electricity from wind. ”

That’s not true. There’s a battery system connected to a wind turbine, and it’s visible from Regina.

“SaskPower has set the lofty goal of 30 per cent wind generation by 2030.”


As of the end of 2014, 1,886 megawatts (MW) of generation capacity had been installed for wind power in North Dakota.

SaskPower’s goal is only 1600MW added by 2030.
