24 people seem to think that you can get solar power at night and wind power when the wind isn't blowing.

Or alternatively they REALLY don't like you pointing this out.....

Of course you can get Solar power at night, if you store it from the daytime. There are a number of ways of doing that, some are already used to store off-peak power generated by nuclear plants that like to work steadily across demand variations.

And wind generators feed into the grid network, if the local wind turbines you can see are not turning, that doesn't mean that the ones out at sea or at the other end of the country (or in another country) are still.
