Hydro-Québec recently forecast a surplus of 7.7 terawatt hours (TWh) for 2011. Less than the 10 TWh for this year, but still, that’s enough electricity to power 770 billion 100-watt light bulbs for an hour.
“We’ve got electricity through the wazoo,” says Daniel Breton, an energy activist with a group called Maîtres Chez Nous – 21st Century, which seeks independence from fossil fuels.
So my question is why do we need to have wind turbines and solar panels??
