Don’t Believe The Hype: Britain’s Power Price Hike All Due to Subsidised Wind Power

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Brits are already paying the price for its suicidal renewable energy policies. Under ‘Bonkers’ Boris that price will be positively murderous. His plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power beggars belief. And will turn many on the lower […]

Some Transition!: Europe’s Power Prices Rocket Whenever the Sun Sets & Calm Weather Sets In

  Europe’s ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar is not looking so ‘inevitable’, after all. A burst of cold, calm weather has grid managers panicking as to where their next megawatt might come from. Those opportunistic ‘devils’ who command reliable, fossil-fuelled power generation sources are making out like veritable bandits. While power punters are bracing […]

New Data Shows Boris ‘Bonkers’ Johnson’s Wind Power Plans Are Completely Ridiculous

The pathetic energy density of wind power is just another reason why it is so insanely expensive, compared to any meaningful power source. The bigger turbine, the further apart they need to be spread – so that the dirty wake of one turbine doesn’t affect the airflow to any turbine downwind and, thereby, reduce its […]

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 […]

Boris Goes Bonkers: UK Set to Squander A Further £50,000,000,000 On Failed Wind Power Experiment

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then Boris Johnson is clearly barking mad. The UK PM’s latest cunning plan is to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on government guaranteed fixed price contracts – paying way above market rates – subsidies and taxpayer support for chaotically intermittent wind […]

Tipping Point: Wind & Solar Chaos Forces Britain to Spend £1.5 Billion A Year Balancing Its Grid

If wind and solar are meant to be a ‘cure’, then it’s one that’s clearly worse than the disease. Touted everywhere as both reliable and cheap, the experience in Britain (and everywhere else for that matter) is all to the contrary. As night follows day, add chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid, and […]

Want The World’s Most Expensive & Unreliable Electricity? Try Offshore Wind Power

Want to pay a fortune for power delivered in chaotic fits and spurts? Why not try offshore wind power? The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. The capital cost of spearing these things offshore is multiples greater than doing so in some dimwitted farmer’s […]

Heaven Help Us: Push For More Subsidised & Intermittent Wind & Solar Adds to COVID-19 Chaos

The coronavirus has delivered a global recession, now RE rent seekers want to deliver a truly Great Depression, with desperate calls for even more subsidies for chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Since Britain launched into its wind power obsession in 2002, retail power prices have more than doubled. Which tends to run against the mantra […]

S-O-S: If COVID-19 Doesn’t Kill Your Granny, Energy Poverty Will

Enduring frigid weather in unheated homes is one of the biggest killers of the elderly. Thanks to an obsession with heavily subsidised, unreliable and expensive wind and solar, the poor and vulnerable drop like flies every winter. That hundreds of thousands of households are suffering energy poverty in what was once the World Power is […]

Descent of Man: Britain’s Suicidal Renewable Energy Policy Lays A Path To Poverty

Britain is reaping the sorry rewards of its wind power obsession, with spiralling power prices and an increasingly unreliable power supply. Back in August last year we reported on a mass blackout that struck Britain, when an offshore wind farm decided to down tools: Blackout Nation: Wind Power Output Collapse Leaves Millions of Brits Totally Powerless […]
