Renewables Repeat: Weather Event Wipes Out Australia’s Wind & Solar Capital (Once Again)

South Australia’s infamous Statewide blackout on 28 September 2016 was caused by wind turbines that couldn’t handle a vigorous spring storm front. Wind speeds exceeded 25m/s (90km/h), which meant turbines at the bulk of its (then 18) wind farms shut down automatically to protect themselves from catastrophic self-destruction. Metropolitan Adelaide was without power for hours, […]

Why Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means End of Reliable & Affordable Power – Forever

The destruction of once reliable and affordable electricity supplies is so evidently deliberate, it can no longer be put down to ignorance, alone. Nothing but brazen ideology sits beneath the claim that we are a heartbeat away from a transition to an all wind and sun powered future. We are continually told that, putting aside […]

Murder – Not Suicide: Europe’s Renewable Energy Policy Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

When it comes to Europe’s wind and solar disaster, ignorance is no longer a defence.  As STT has been pointing out for over a decade, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any serious effort to rely on wind and solar is the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the so-called ‘transition’. What’s happened in Germany, […]

Daily Delivery Fails: Why Weather-Dependent Wind Power Will Always Be Utterly Pointless

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when households and businesses need it, has absolutely no commercial value. Hence the massive and endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar and the punitive mandates that force retailers to take it, ahead of the reliable and affordable stuff. Random 3,000 to 4,000 MW wind power output […]

Renewable Energy Madness: Why Net-Zero CO2 Targets Herald New Miserable Dark Age

Wisdom comes with experience: people soon wise up to the reality of the wind and solar ‘transition’ once they’ve spent time freezing or boiling in the dark. Over time, the experience will be shared by more of our compatriots on planet Earth. Obsessive, indeed maniacal, renewable energy policies are a guarantee of crippling power bills […]

‘Green’ Energy Myth Exposed: Subsidised Wind & Solar Scam Built On Perpetual Lies

The wind and solar industries were founded on myth, built on lies and run on subsidies. The only thing they are capable of producing on a consistent basis are Pinocchio-style whoppers, starting with the notion that wind and solar power are actually good for the environment. Breached promises about delivering power on demand are met […]

Subsidised Suicide: Unreliable Wind & Solar Guarantee Economic Self-Destruction

Intermittent wind and solar are a guarantee of rocketing power prices and rocketing power prices are a guarantee of economic destruction. An energy-hungry world will never satisfy its needs by pinning consumers’ hopes on the weather. But that’s the model that our political betters have been pushing over the last 20 years. How we landed […]

Wind Power’s Woeful Performance Causing Blackouts & Mass Load Shedding

Wind and solar acolytes fail to mention that the ‘inevitable transition’ includes hours spent sitting freezing or boiling in the dark. Power rationing by postcode is the new normal in Australia, as grid managers attempt to deal with the chaotic delivery of wind and solar. Former energy users are being encouraged not to use energy […]

Ingrained Insanity: Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster Leaves Australians Powerless

Australia is yet another perfect example of how to trash a power supply with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Germany, California and Texas led the charge and Australia’s so-called renewable energy capital, South Australia was amongst the front runners. SA set the tone with Australia’s first statewide blackout – during a spring […]

Blackout Nation: Australians Latest Victims of Subsidised Wind & Solar Chaos

That Australia’s Eastern Grid is on the brink of collapse with a complete ‘system black’ on the cards comes as no surprise. The $7 billion in annual RET subsidies pocketed by wind and solar generators were designed to allow them to underbid Australia’s reliable and affordable coal-fired generators, destroying their profitability and, ultimately, driving them […]
