The Wind is Always Blowing Somewhere Fallacy

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that the wind really blows somewhere all the time. I am sure that there is plenty of wind somewhere in North America when there is a lull in Europe. Or let’s stay within the continent. It might even be true in a philosophical sense. But using that would mean that the transport of electricity is free – which is very far from being the truth. Also, let’s assume that you need 3 wind turbines at 3 very different locations to produce power at any moment. One single conventional generator would replace that. How do we pay for all this?
