Sky’s The Limit: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ South Australians Hit With (Another) 22% Price Hike

Attempting to rely on intermittent wind and solar is guaranteed to send power prices into orbit. Just ask a South Australian. Despite some desperate wind industry propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy […]

Renewable Energy ‘Transition’: More Wind Power, Higher Prices, More Blackouts

The chaos that comes with intermittent wind and solar get serious in summer, when demand surges, the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. This summer, the barbecue stopper will literally be another round of what’s euphemistically called “demand management”: Soviet era power rationing, an integral part of Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine […]

Australia Enters Third World: Chaotic Delivery of Wind & Solar Forces Industrial Users Off Grid

Dictating when and if power consumers get electricity was once the preserve of communist dictatorships (think the USSR, North Korea and Cuba). Thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar, Australia now sits comfortably in the same dismal ranks. No longer can industrial users expect to have power according to their business plans […]

Wind Power Output Collapses Send Power Prices into Orbit: The World’s Biggest Joke Just Got Serious

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. The debacle that started in the renewable energy ‘superpower’, also known as South Australia has broken the border and is spreading fast. New South Wales is now being treated to a lesson on how increasing reliance on the ‘unreliables’ inevitably […]

Affordable Energy Wars: Australian MPs Determined to End Subsidies to Wind & Solar

  The solution to Australia’s self-inflicted energy calamity involves a battle between deluded zealots and pragmatic realists. In the former camp sits Audrey Zibelman (head of AEMO) and Kerry Schott (head of the Energy Security Board), along with a band of equally deluded fellow travellers. In the latter, it’s the 30 or so Liberal and […]

Redbank Power Station’s Renaissance: Bitcoiners Sign Up to Buy Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

  For power consumers searching for the cheapest and most reliable power, coal is the only answer. Crypto-currencies, like Bitcoin, have been a bonanza; not only for risk-hungry techie investors (not to mention risk-averse drug smugglers and money launderers), they’ve been a windfall for power generators – provided those generators can deliver it reliably and […]

NSW Planning Dept Scotches Jupiter Wind Farm Project: Locals Ecstatic

  Utterly pointless and universally detested in the communities where they get speared, wind turbines have one real purpose: harvesting subsidies. Communities that get organised early and fight hard from the get go have a chance of avoiding becoming ‘road-kill’ for renewables rent seekers. However, start bargaining with wind power outfits about setbacks from homes, […]
