Brian Zinchuk: Reliability of the electrical grid is everything. Without it, nothing else matters

We’re building the BHP Jansen mine, the biggest potash mine in the world. It needs 200 megawatts. What do we do if build a whole bunch of wind power, like Alberta’s 3,618 megawatts, and it drops to 2 megawatts? Sorry, boys shut her down. Good luck coming out tonight, or breathing when the ventilation loses power. The feds said we can’t use coal or gas anymore, so good luck.
