Massive & Endless Subsidies Destroy Claim That Wind & Solar Cheapest Of All

In the ‘pigs might fly category’ sits the claim that intermittent wind and solar are the cheapest power sources, amongst all contenders. Were there even a shred of truth to that story, then renewable energy rent seekers wouldn’t be hounding policymakers at every turn to ensure that the massive subsidies they currently enjoy be guaranteed […]

Wind & Solar Scam Always and Everywhere About Massive & Endless Subsidies

  Wind and solar don’t run on sunshine and breezes, they’re powered by massive and endless subsidies. Remove the subsidies and both so-called ‘industries’ would disappear in a heartbeat. The perpetual claims about wind and solar competing with dispatchable generation sources, such as coal, gas and nuclear, ring hollow when talk turns to reducing the […]

Nothing Sustainable About Wind & Solar Power Generation – Except Massive Government Subsidies

After 30 years of operation, enterprises that would collapse overnight without massive subsidies ain’t “industries” – which is what wind and large-scale solar outfits spuriously claim to be. And when RE rent seekers talk about their “sustainable” business model, that’s just code for ensuring that those massive subsidies outlast religion. Following that theme, Robert Bradley […]

Scots Suffer Crippling Power Bills, While Wind Industry Pocket £Billions in Record Subsidies

  Scotland’s wind power scam is positively criminal: foreign-owned wind power outfits have pocket tens of £billions in subsidies; working-class Scots struggle to pay crippling power bills – plenty of them have no hope of powering their homes ever again. A further obscenity is the fact that wind farms in Scotland are routinely paid hundreds […]

Perpetual Subsidy Sucker: Why The Wind Industry Will Never Grow Up

One thing you’ll never, ever hear from wind power outfits is a call to cut the subsidies that sustain them. Remarkably, whether in Germany, Australia, Ontario or Texas, renewables rent seekers all speak the same language. When talk turns to subsidies, you’ll only ever hear words like ‘more’. Challenge them about their nonsensical claims that […]

Glorious Fiction: Busting the Myth that Wind & Solar Will Soon Power the Planet

Delusions come in various sizes, but the biggest of all is the claim that we’ll soon be powered by nothing but sunshine and breezes. With the prospect of a Sleepy Joe Biden Presidency and the imposition of the Squad’s economy-wrecking New Green Deal the delusion is about to take on monstrous proportions. So, no time […]

In-a-Nutshell: New Research Shows Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Can Never Power Us

There’s a reason not to support heavily subsidised wind and solar: they simply don’t work as meaningful power sources; they never have and never will. A team of Irish and US-based researchers have produced a comprehensive piece of research explaining just why any dollar spent propping up chaotically intermittent wind and solar with taxpayer’s money, […]

Endless $Billions: Counting The Hidden Cost of Renewables on Electricity Prices

Uncovering the true costs of intermittent wind and solar is like playing hide and seek while blindfolded. In Australia, the subsidies doled out under the Federal Government’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target and its domestic cousin, the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme, that covers rooftop solar and other household rorts, adds at least $4 billion a year […]

Wicked Waste: Why Every New Wind Turbine Built Is Costing You Serious Money

Adding wind turbines to a power grid is like pushing on string; the effort applied rarely matches the output at the other end of the line. Australia has one the world’s largest interconnected grids, covering Queensland, NSW, ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia – with wind turbines plastered far and wide across every one of […]

No Free Lunch: The Truly Gobsmacking Cost of Generating Offshore Wind Power

Effervescent claims that offshore wind power is cheap have fallen flat. When the rising capital cost of taking wind turbines offshore is accounted for, the power that they occasionally generate turns out to be the most expensive electricity of all, and by a very substantial margin. A couple of years back in the UK, rent […]
