Calm weather and sunset guarantee it.
Every routine collapse in wind and solar power output (for the reasons above) requires the total capacity lost in consequence to come from somewhere, and that ‘somewhere’ is going to be a plant running on nuclear, coal or gas or, in certain places, hydro plant.
