The wind turbines must have been working well today given the winds we have had. Hardly any power cuts across Essex.
Remainers have the rest of 2020 to transition to rejoiners

Wind turbines don't have a finite speed. When they spin at a certain speed they will automatically reduce speed, high RPM is not required for maximum power generation.Information relayed to me by a wind turbine engineer.

Tiptree was without power yesterday so there will be a jam shortage this week.
