Speaking as an engineer, its a laudable goal and I support it. However getting that last few % over the line is extremely difficult due to issues around voltage stability and power factors. We’re fortunate that we have abundant hydro as thats one of the best sources of energy storage but some large scale batteries need to be built as they can react in milliseconds to frequency variations, and they’re expensive. We CAN do it, and we will, just have to be prepared to reach into your pocket for it.
