Wind & Solar Subsidies: High Time To End The Never-Ending Story of Wasted $Billions

Death and taxes are certainties, so too the wind and solar industry’s critical dependence on massive and endless subsidies. Those pushing wind and solar keep telling us that the power they produce is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. Every so often, rent seekers and their political enablers are faced with the retort that, […]

Part-Time Power: Subsidised Solar World’s Most Expensive Virtue Signalling Exercise

There is a place for solar power, but it ain’t connected to a power grid. Delivering power for no more than seven hours a day (ordinarily between five and six hours, at best, and less in winter) means sticking solar panels on homes connected to conventional power grids makes no sense at all. As the […]

SA is venerated as Australia’s Wind and Solar capital; and the renewables cult is heralding this, apparently, momentous event as their ‘Hour of Power’. Their childish cheering, ignores the fact that […]

Barking Mad: Australia’s Ludicrous Plan To Send Subsidised Solar Power 3,350KM From Darwin to Singapore

Australia’s energy policy is a joke, but a plan to send subsidised solar power to Singapore proves lunatics really have taken over the asylum. The Morrison Federal government has given major project status to a 10GW undersea cable to run from Darwin to Singapore over a distance of at least 3,350 km. The cost of […]

RE Reckoning: Solar Powered Households Forced to Pay For The Grid Chaos They Cause

Australia’s obscenely generous subsidies and Feed-in-Tariffs for domestic solar resulted in millions of households blanketed in panels. The consequences for the power grid have been diabolical; its management is now a daily nightmare. Western Australia’s fixation with heavily subsidised solar power is threatening to destroy its once wholly reliable electricity grid, thanks to its sporadic and […]
