India Rumbles Wind Power as Fake Electricity: Output Collapses During Dead-Calm Monsoon

  It never takes them long to work out that wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. Eco-zealots have attempted to ram wind and solar power down the throats of Third World governments under the auspices of saving the planet and purportedly with the purpose of dragging millions out of […]

No Contest: Wind & Solar Can Never Compete With Ever Reliable & Affordable Coal-Fired Power

  It won’t be long before RE zealots are forced to accept defeat: wherever you look, coal, gas, hydro and nuclear keep thrashing wind and solar. Not simply because they’re cheaper, but because they work. And when we say ‘work’ STT means delivering power when and whenever consumers need it. STT doesn’t promote coal-fired power […]

Coal Wins Power Price ‘War’: Adding Storage Renders Cost of Wind & Solar Astronomical

The myth that wind and solar are meaningful power sources was busted long ago. Quite apparently incapable of operating on their own, what purports to be the future of electricity generation turns out to be a pair of complete duds. [Note to Ed: is this the part where we point out tricky facts such as […]

Merkel’s Muddle: Coal Keeps Powering On as Germany’s Renewable Energy Transition Implodes

  Germany’s ‘transition’ to wind and solar is a full-scale debacle: rocketing power prices and an unstable grid, the only tangible ‘results’. Anyone still talking about an ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s wonder fuels, only needs to be reminded about the power pricing and supply calamity that is South Australia. As another example of what follows […]

Redbank Power Station’s Renaissance: Bitcoiners Sign Up to Buy Cheap & Reliable Coal-Fired Power

  For power consumers searching for the cheapest and most reliable power, coal is the only answer. Crypto-currencies, like Bitcoin, have been a bonanza; not only for risk-hungry techie investors (not to mention risk-averse drug smugglers and money launderers), they’ve been a windfall for power generators – provided those generators can deliver it reliably and […]

Want Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos? Wind Power’s Your Answer

Deranged and delusional, those that promote wind power come up with all manner of falsehoods to protect their beloved. One of the latest is that conventional generators, namely coal-fired power plants ‘fail all the time’. When presented with images like the one above from Aneroid Energy – depicting the output every wind turbine connected to […]

System Reboot Required: Undoing Australia’s Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Disaster

  For some strange reason, wind ‘powered’ Victoria and South Australia suffer wholesale prices around double what’s paid in coal-fired Queensland and NSW? Could it be that massively subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind power has wrecked power markets in Daniel Andrew’s Victoria and Jay Weatherill’s SA? The graphic above appeared in The Australian, a few […]
