Dinorwig is also a 'Black Start' power station. This is one of the few that can self start and can be used to restart the whole grid in the event of a massive failure.
As a side note, Fiddlers Ferry, one of the last coal fired power stations will close next March.
It seems that we have enough power generation capacity for now and the immediate future.
I have to wonder how many of the informed comments posted in this threat actually come from people who own a BEV.
Once you actually own one your whole mindset changes and well, things are just not the way people describe.
