Wind craters yet again in Alberta and Saskatchewan last week

Wind power in Alberta was pretty low for much of last week, often in the 100 to 200 megawatt range despite an installed based of 3,731 megawatts across now 37 wind farms, comprised of hundreds of wind turbines costing billions of dollar. But at 11:33 a.m. on Saturday, June 9, wind power production fell to 19 megawatts, or 0.5 per cent capacity.
