Post Modern Power: Scots Face Whopping Bill For Government’s Wind Power Obsession

Scotland’s energy policy was hijacked by lunatics and the canny Scot, renowned for their parsimony, is paying a very heavy price, indeed. The subsidies paid to wind power outfits have been colossal; and all that state-mandated largess is being tacked onto Scottish power bills and/or picked up by taxpayers, south of the border. One of […]

Scotland’s Wind Industry Clear-Fells 17,283 Acres & Wipes Out 14,000,000 Trees To ‘Save’ Planet

  Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. Across Germany, millions of acres of forest have been clear-felled and great swathes cut through others, to allow some 30,000 of these things to be speared across Deutschland. The same wanton destruction has been integral to Scotland’s […]

Money For Nothing: Scotland’s Wind Farms Earn More Revenue When They’re Turned Off!!

The fact that Scotland’s wind farms have pocketed £650m for not generating power has attracted more than just a little attention. STT has run several stories over the last few months about wind power outfits being paid very handsomely to NOT generate electricity. Perhaps it’s the sense of outrage that comes with knowing a group […]

Cash Cow: UK Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 in ‘Constraint Payments’ To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. In the past, sharp, entrepreneurial types have made plenty of easy money from ‘selling’ the London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower to unwitting dupes. But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Priceless: Scots Forced to Pay Wind Farms £650,000,000 To NOT Generate Power

Once upon a time, electricity had a value defined by demand, not by the weather. Power that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has absolutely no commercial value. Which brings us to weather-dependent wind power; generated in chaotic, random intervals, it’s a case of either feast or famine. But businesses and households don’t […]

Scottish Scandal: Government Squanders £600 Million on ‘Constraint Payments’ to Wind Power Outfits for Discarded Power

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has no commercial value. Indeed, when the gales rip across the Scottish Highlands and there’s a surfeit of wind power generated, that electricity can’t even be given away. Instead, taxpayers become the ‘buyers’ of last resort; not that they could never be called willing purchasers, […]

Wind Power Chaos Reigns: Scots Build Diesel Generators & Brace For Week-Long Blackouts

Let renewable energy zealots and other such ideologues anywhere near your power system and prepare for deadly chaos. Wind and solar ‘powered’ South Australians know what it is to do without power for days on end. Having experienced plenty of load shedding lasting for 5 hours or more, South Australians got a real taste of […]

Highland Habitat Destruction: Scots Wild About Wind Farms Wiping Out Endangered Wildcats

  For the modern eco-zealot green hypocrisy knows no limit. A generation back, eco-warriors would go to war over the slaughter of a few furry seals and the odd, lumbering whale destined for Japanese dinner tables, and would weep for days over the loss of a single oil-soaked cormorant or pelican. These days, those that […]

Scotland The Brave: Thuggish Wind Farm Developer’s Plan to Wreck Highland Homes Defeated

The Scots have been long renowned for their fighting spirit. Think William Wallace and his mates, armed with sticks and a few claymores, wearing nothing more than last year’s drapes and some overworked and misplaced blue eyeshadow, giving the English a right Royal thumping. Every victory counts. Even small ones. Especially when your enemy is […]
