Colossal Collapse: Wind & Solar Investment Plummets as Subsidies Subside

In the absence of endless subsidies, the wind and solar ‘industries’ would disappear in a heartbeat, which is precisely how things are panning out for renewable rent seekers in Australia. The idea that there is a natural market for electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed, is pure nonsense: hence the massive […]

End Game: Subsidy Wind Down Heralds Collapse in Wind & Solar Investment

Wind and solar power are always and everywhere the product of massive (and seemingly) endless subsidies. Except, there is an end. There always is.

The same line is […]
