The UK is currently being hit by heavy storms. There is high winds and flooding. This is likely weather related.

Have to ask.........is no one in the UK providing any explanation for this?
the UK is being hit by the worst storms of the year right now. High winds and flooding. This is possibly just weather related.

Are you seriously suggesting that the power grid runs on batteries? Speaking as an electrican, there is no such thing a getting energy back - electricty only flows one-way through the circuit back to ground and the Universe where it came from to start with!

What I'm suggesting is that there are limits and quotas placed on the production of power by regulating agencies, and if you fall below or above those production goals the consumer gets slammed with the increased costs. (They never go down.) So after a period of heavy consumption, the producers jimmy the system by having rolling blackouts where they can cut production and make up the difference to meet the goals. It doesn't have anything to do with you splicing wires.
