No Brainer: Subsidised Wind Power is What’s Driving Your Power Prices Through the Roof

Rocketing power prices and grid instability are two inescapable consequences of subsidised wind and solar. While sunshine and breezes might be free, attempting to run your power system using nature’s gifts, brings with it a raft of other costs which RE zealots tend to gloss over.

Power Drain: Relying on Renewables? Get Ready For Mass Blackouts & Power Rationing

Last Gasp: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Leaves Australian Economy On Life Support

The coronavirus is hitting Australia’s economy, but it will pass; whereas, its self-inflicted renewable energy calamity is here to stay.
