Wind Industry Demands End to Subsidies: Wind Power Now Cheaper than Coal & Gas-Fired Power

Admit it, we had you there for a moment. No, our headline is definitely fake news. However, if the wind industry was taken at its word (unlikely) then the subsidies would have ended years ago. The likes of AGL, the Clean Energy Council and a whole band of wind worshipping lunatics have been telling us […]

Government Brawl with AGL Signals End of Renewable Subsidies

All of a sudden, everybody is interested in electricity. As a result, Australia’s patrician and aloof PM, Malcolm Turnbull has been gifted with any number of self-appointed energy market advisors. The quality of the advice tends to vary, and the solutions proffered generally have something to do with whether the protagonist is invested in the […]

AGL’s Renewable Energy Future: Driving Wind Farm Neighbours From Their Homes Without Compensation

  Over the past couple of months, AGL has bombarded TV viewers with propaganda claiming that its push to wallow in the massive and endless subsidies ladled out to wind and solar power generators comes “with no compromises to you”.

Finkel’s report promised Australia’s very own Enron, among others, the opportunity to rape and pillage in a power market with an effective 42% RET, dominated by intermittent and unreliable wind […]

Malicious Torture: Macarthur Wind Farm Neigbours Continue to Suffer, as AGL Dodges Damning Acoustic Evidence

The incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound from AGL’s Macarthur wind farm in western Victoria has been driving neighbours nuts or out of their homes since December 2012. Having been lied to and bullied for just as long, one of AGL’s victims (and an STT Champion) Annie Gardner let rip with this stinging rebuke, […]

‘Mongrels’: AGL Treats its Wind Farm Neighbours with Ridicule & Contempt

*** ‘Wicked’ and ‘wanton’ doesn’t quite capture the manner in which wind power outfit, AGL behaves towards its victims. Spearing hundreds of these things into the heart of (once) peaceful and prosperous rural communities would be bad enough, but treating those that suffer the consequences – such as the chronic sleep deprivation caused by incessant […]
