Australia’s Obsession With Hopelessly Intermittent Wind & Solar Wrecking Entire Power Grid

Australians once enjoyed affordable power, reliably delivered: the chaotic delivery of wind and solar changed all that. Australian power prices have rocketed out-of-control: its wind and solar power capital, South Australia pays the highest electricity prices, in the world. Mass power cuts (aka load shedding and demand management) and mass blackouts are the new normal. […]

Wind & Solar Chaos Leaves Europe’s Power Grid On Brink of Total Collapse

Germany led the way, and others soon followed: erratically delivered wind and solar now dominates Europe’s power grid. Naturally enough, power prices have rocketed and grid managers are left to deal with the chaos delivered by sunset and/or calm weather. Rapid surges and/or collapses in voltage and frequency – consequent upon surges and collapses in […]

Summer Holiday-Hell: Power Consumers Face Staggering Bill Whenever Wind Power Goes AWOL

When RE zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar, they never specify when. They say it’s ‘inevitable’, but always kick the can down the road when pressed about precisely when we’ll all be powered by nothing but sunshine and breezes. Perhaps it’s got something to do with sunset? Or maybe even the weather? […]

Breakout the Candles: Chaotic Wind & Solar Mean More Mass Summertime Blackouts

The chaotic delivery of wind and solar has left Australia’s Eastern Grid on the brink of collapse. The Eastern Grid connects Queensland, New South Wales, the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia. Reliable coal-fired generators have been knocked out of the game, made uneconomic thanks to renewable energy policies that direct more than $3 billion a […]

Living in Australia? Then You’re Being Powered By Coal – So Deal With It!

If you’re reading this post in Australia, you’re doing so thanks to coal-fired power. Don’t like it? Then get off the internet. And, while you’re at it, turn off your lights, your air-conditioner, let your smart phone run flat and, just for laughs, start tackling busy intersections without the benefit of traffic lights. Wind ‘powered’ […]

Blackout Nation: Chaotic Delivery of Wind & Solar Causing Blackouts & Wrecking Australia’s Power Grid

  The chaotic delivery of wind and solar has left Australia’s Eastern Grid on the brink of collapse. The Eastern Grid connects Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia. Reliable coal-fired generators have been knocked out of the game, made uneconomic thanks to renewable energy policies that direct more than $3 billion a […]

Chaotic Wind & Solar Power: A Pair of Guaranteed Grid Wreckers

There’s no place on the planet where wind and solar power perform anything like the overblown rhetoric that surrounds them. [Note to Ed: has it got something to do with the weather and the Earth’s rotation?] As wind and solar power capacity increases it becomes harder for RE zealots to hide the cruel and unassailable […]
