Stick it where the sun doesn't shine

Powerline reminds us of the problem with solar energy - it's not always there when you need it.
[T]here is a major problem with these renewable energy sources. Their electrical output is not dispatchable. Their output is entirely unable respond to electricity demand as and when needed. Energy is contributed to the grid in a haphazard manner dependent on the weather, and certainly not necessarily when it is required.
