How Many Trillions Of Dollars Have Been Spent On Renewables? -- November 28, 2018

I don't know.

New England


November 29, 2018: data points for ISO New England --
  • winter peak / summer peak: around 30,000 MW
  • solar / wind provides about 1,000 MW during the winter
  • the sun has set when peak demand hits in the winter
Original Post 

It's hard to find nameplate capacity for wind/solar in ISO New England but it appears to be about 4,000 MW. It was about 3,800 MW at the end of 2017.

I generally see no more than 1,000 MW of electricity coming from wind/solar over at ISO New England. Its low today about 816 MW or 816/4,000 = 20%.

816/3800 = 21.5% which is about what others have told me to expect when it comes to wind/solar.

See this post.
