I’m not saying who is or isn’t supplying it, I’m saying the new supply is not renewable energy. Peak daytime use during daylight hours is one thing, powering the grid when the sun’s not shining is another, and they need to come up with 5MW.
Can't they increase solar and wind, and add batteries? That graph above certainly does show some power coming from it stored in batteries. Battery storage might still be expensive, but it's less challenging than automotive batteries, as energy density and weight and volume (area of land taken) are not as important as cars.
