“US Energy Sources For Electric Power Generation and Wind Turbine Reliability Problems,”
Edgar J. Gunter, 2022.


It has been predicted that the United States will face unprecedented challenges with respect to the supply of reliable electric power to various parts of the country this coming summer. For example, California last summer had rolling blackouts and now it has been predicted that this will also occur in other regions of the country such as the Midwest, Southwest and even in some regions of New England. The reasons for this are complex; but essentially the main causes for this to occur is the climate change with elevated temperatures, drought, most important, the reduction of reliable electric power sources and the fragile electric power grid.
