Matching the availability of wind energy with customer demand is difficult for several reasons. The location of the resource, which may be remote or lacking transmission capacity, may not match the load. Also, the times when wind energy is available might not correlate with peak customer demand. Finally, there is a price difference between firm and non-firm transmission. In this paper, we discuss solar and wind resources regarding (a) assessment of intermittency, (b) available options for backfilling intermittent resources, (c) assessment of tariff solutions for accommodating intermittent resources, and (d) location mismatch issue
