Don't they have wind over there in Japan? Why not some great big old windmills?

One big obstacle for both solar and wind is the dolrum periods (cloudy days / no wind). Technology never came up with an economical electrical storage system with the scale needed to compete with conventional generation.

At best, solar and wind today only rank as offsets for conventional means.

I kinda rant out when I hear people blather that solar and wind technology are ready to compete with coal and nuclear; obviously they ain't!
