Doomsday Prepping: Americans Told to Give Up ‘Selfish’ Demand for Constant Electricity

Wind and solar ‘powered’ Californians and South Australians know what it is to have their power cut when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Mass blackouts and load shedding are part and parcel of our inevitable transition to an all wind and sun powered future. But now we are told, that none of […]

Held to Ransom: Smart Meters Shut Off Power Whenever Renewable Energy Output Collapses

  So-called smart meters are a very dumb response to intermittent wind and solar, even dumber energy sources. Wherever governments attempt to run on sunshine and breezes, the push to control and micromanage household power use, quickly follows. Over the last few Australian summers, we’ve been treated to power rationing on a grand scale – […]

Totally Choked: Australian Wind Power Investment Suffers Massive Collapse

Renewable energy rent seekers are fuming because Australia’s power grid can’t take any more of their chaotically generated wind and solar power. The massive daily spikes and collapses in wind and solar power output have made the grid manager’s life a living hell: Hopeless Joke: Australia’s Wind Industry Keeps On Failing to Deliver the Goods As […]

RE Reckoning: Solar Powered Households Forced to Pay For The Grid Chaos They Cause

Australia’s obscenely generous subsidies and Feed-in-Tariffs for domestic solar resulted in millions of households blanketed in panels. The consequences for the power grid have been diabolical; its management is now a daily nightmare. Western Australia’s fixation with heavily subsidised solar power is threatening to destroy its once wholly reliable electricity grid, thanks to its sporadic and […]

Dark Ages: South Australia’s Solar Power Obsession Threatens Total ‘System Black’

Keen to rely on solar panels for your power? Then get ready for one hell of a bumpy ride. A maniacal reliance on chaotically intermittent wind and solar poses an existential threat to Australia’s power grid. So far, it’s been limited to “demand management” (a euphemism for controlled blackouts) and in wind and solar obsessed […]

Power Generation & Distribution For Dummies (or Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Will Never Work)

If you’re looking to wreck a grid and send power prices into orbit, then pin your power hopes to wind and solar power delivered at mother nature’s whims. South Australia did; it suffers the world’s highest retail power prices and became the butt of international jokes for a series of weather-related mass blackouts. Looking for an example? Take a […]
