Too Much Electricity! Time to Stop Inflexible and Dangerous New Nuclear – Why are More Being Built? A supporter of Radiation Free Lakeland has pointed out that the news that there is too much electricity going into the grid: “shows the fallacy of “base load”. What it really means in inflexible. Yet again we are seeing the economics of nuclear fail, as it is very expensive so needs a guaranteed price per kwh. Surplus means low prices. If the grid frequency goes too high (due to low load) that is dangerous for equipment on the grid so protection will kick in. Generation will have to be shed to keep grid frequency in check.” The reason that there are emergency measures needed to prevent blackouts is because there is Too Much Electricity!
