34. Very weird...
How did you ever get the idea that I somehow thought we didn't need "adequate" storage?

My statement was that by utilizing more varied inputs and spreading our input net farther we could minimize the amount of storage we would need.

We'll probably also need something like gas peaking plants for deep backup. Hopefully we'll get to the point where we can run them of biogas.
