Wind-power generation does not correlate with demand

Wind-power generation (blue), insolation (gold), and power demand (red) time series data show wind energy's poor correlation with demand. Thirty days of data collected in April 2010 from Bonneville Power Administration are superimposed and normalized to their maximum values. Average values are in color-highlighted black lines.
