With serious amounts of megawatts now installed or proposed, some utilities are showing signs of nervousness on the technical front. The wind industry is well wired to these concerns. It knows that provision of better quality power can reduce network costs for wind plant operators and even provide additional income streams. The (mostly imaginary) problems of intermittency still surface with monotonous regularity, but there is increased awareness among regulators that penalising wind unnecessarily is not a route towards least-cost electricity.
