No Contest: Wind & Solar Can Never Compete With Ever Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Power

  It won’t be long before RE zealots are forced to accept defeat: wherever you look, coal, gas, hydro and nuclear keep thrashing wind and solar. Not simply because they’re cheaper, but because they work. And when we say ‘work’ STT means delivering power when and whenever consumers need it. STT doesn’t promote coal-fired power […]

SA Labor Government’s Wind Power Obsession Generates Crippling $815m Bill for Taxpayers

  South Australians can thank their former Labor government’s obsession with wind and solar power for their status as an international joke. Paying the highest retail power prices in the world (with worse to come), routine load shedding and statewide blackouts, and a grid on the brink of collapse, is all the inevitable consequence of […]

French Kiss of Death: Paris Obsession Driving Australian Power Prices Through the Roof

For Australian households and businesses being crushed by out-of-control power prices the Paris Climate Agreement is a maniac’s suicide note. With nothing else to justify the $60 billion being thrown in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar, renewable energy rent seekers are clinging to the notion that the deal done in the City of […]

Power Surge: Weather Dependent Wind Power Means Massive Summertime Price Hike for South Australia

  South Australia is renowned for the world’s highest power prices and mass blackouts, thanks to its risible ‘reliance’ on sunshine and breezes. In Australia’s RE capital, sunset and massive, sudden and unpredictable collapses in wind power output not only result in mass load shedding (controlled blackouts), but send spot prices for power into the […]

Marriage Meltdown: How A Love Affair With Intermittent Wind & Solar Ended In Tears

Australia’s grab bag of renewable energy policies are like a marriage made in hell. Destroying its once reliable grid and sending power prices through the roof, Federal and State Renewable Energy Targets are designed to destroy conventional generators. And, so far, they’ve done an admirable job. Australia now faces a summer of widespread blackouts and […]

South Australia’s 50% Renewable Energy Fail: World’s Highest Power Prices Caused by Subsidised Wind & Solar

South Australians suffer the world’s highest power prices because they rely on heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind & solar. It’s a relationship for which the economic backwater has become world renowned. Along with its notoriety as a (notionally) first world economy with a third world power supply. If you’re looking to attack the infantile […]

Giant Renewable Energy Debacle Demands Even Bigger Lies: Boffins Claim More Wind & Solar Guaranteed to Cut Power Prices

Efforts by RE zealots to maintain control of Australia’s energy policy have turned to high farce. Working on the adage that the bigger the lie, the more often that it’s told, the more people are likely to believe it, the AEMO’s Audrey Zibelman and the Energy Security Board’s Kerry Schott have decided to take reality, […]
