Just a small addition to the foregoing post: The UK discussion of power costs mentions the coldest periods as the time when generation of electricity must be highest, and also when winds are slight, since colder periods are times of high pressure.
For the US, heat waves are when the most electricity has to be generated, since we have much more air conditioning. Regardless, the hottest periods are also typically times of high pressure and low winds, meaning that once again peak power is going to be when wind contributes little.
