Default What Happens When The Wind Stops?

I know, behind the paywall but looks like the folks across the pond discovered the hard way that wind does stop blowing.

It was a failure in wind turbines that cause the energy problem here in TX last winter and the feds would not allow TX to bring traditional power plants online to take up the shortage. Wind and solar are not completely dependable. PERIOD!

I don't know why instead of wind they don't go to Tide Hydroelectricity, especially in areas with huge strong running tides. Pollution free and Tides never stop running in and out twice a day which would give 4 times a day when they could generate. It isn't ugly like solar farms and windmills.
