But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Post Modern Power: Scots Face Whopping Bill For Government’s Wind Power Obsession

Scotland’s energy policy was hijacked by lunatics and the canny Scot, renowned for their parsimony, is paying a very heavy price, indeed.

Money For Nothing: Scotland’s Wind Farms Earn More Revenue When They’re Turned Off!!

The fact that Scotland’s wind farms have pocketed £650m for not generating power has attracted more than just a little attention.

Britain’s Wind Power Debacle: Wind Power Outfits Paid £200 Million a Year for Producing NO Power at All

Already faced with an unstable grid and rocketing power prices thanks to its gamble on […]

This Daily Express piece, which uncovers the scandal in Scotland, is a little confused on its facts, but we’ll sort that out below. Wind farms get £5million handout because […]

UK’s Wind Rush Leaves Grid Vulnerable to Collapse & Power Punters Foot the Bill

Like the Germans, the Brits are now reaping the whirlwind of their insane renewable energy policy. Not only have power prices skyrocketed, the perverse economics of that policy has left the UK grid vulnerable to complete collapse. Britain’s energy needs have been so mismanaged – and the incentives filched from taxpayers and power consumers and […]
