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. STT has run several stories over the last few months about wind power outfits being paid very handsomely to NOT generate electricity. Perhaps it’s the sense of outrage that comes with knowing a group […]

Cash Cow: UK Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 in ‘Constraint Payments’ To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power. In the past, sharp, entrepreneurial types have made plenty of easy money from ‘selling’ the London Bridge and the Eiffel Tower to unwitting dupes. But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Priceless: Scots Forced to Pay Wind Farms £650,000,000 To NOT Generate Power

Once upon a time, electricity had a value defined by demand, not by the weather. Power that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has absolutely no commercial value. Which brings us to weather-dependent wind power; generated in chaotic, random intervals, it’s a case of either feast or famine. But businesses and households don’t […]

Cuomo’s Cover-Up: Colossal Cost of New York’s Wind Power Subsidies Finally Revealed

The wind industry is built on lies and runs on subsidies. But, in a rare turn of events, an effort to cover up the cost of those subsidies has come unstuck, in grand style. Initially, Andrew Cuomo’s cronies put forward a lowball figure for the cost of subsidies to wind power in New York State, […]

Brits Belted: UK’s Subsidised Wind Power Obsession Leaves 3,000,000 Households Suffering Energy Poverty

Millions of British households face another bitter winter, unable to meet their rocketing power bills. An obsession with chaotically intermittent wind power (both off and onshore) has sent power prices spiralling. And, adding to the misery, the annual cost of renewable energy subsidies, Feed in Tariffs, fixed contract prices for wind and solar etc to […]

Renewables Rip-Off: Massive Subsidies Make Offshore Wind Power Most Expensive Of All

The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. In Australia, the Labor backed construction union is howling about the fact that they can’t get an enormous offshore wind project up and running off the coast of Victoria. Throwing scorn at the Federal Coalition government about […]

Following False Prophets: Why Wind & Solar Can Never Replace Fossil Fuels

Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro and geothermal power. Show a picture like the one above – the entire output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid during […]
