How can the electric system take intermittent energy sources like wind and sun and integrate them with conventional fuels for electricity, like natural gas? General Electric and a small California company called eSolar announced a new strategy on Tuesday: use the solar power to make steam that will supplement the steam from the natural gas. And tack on some wind machines nearby, in an arrangement that lets the natural gas compensate for variations in the wind and sun.
