Wind Could Provide 25% or More Electricity for Most States

I don't think the comment #1 is correct: the wind power is fed to the grid, which is Nation wide. Lack of wind in an area is statistically compensated in most instances by wind, blowing some where else. 100% back up is really excessive and unreasonable. Then: why back up should come from (new?) gas plants only and not from water-, from geothermal- from sun- and, to a certain but not negligible extent, from nuclear- and fossil fuel- power plants? And lately, what about the role of smart grids? I think we need to rethink our whole system of energy production and consumption, unless someone prefers climate problems
