SA Labor Government’s Wind Power Obsession Generates Crippling $815m Bill for Taxpayers

  South Australians can thank their former Labor government’s obsession with wind and solar power for their status as an international joke. Paying the highest retail power prices in the world (with worse to come), routine load shedding and statewide blackouts, and a grid on the brink of collapse, is all the inevitable consequence of […]

French Kiss of Death: Paris Obsession Driving Australian Power Prices Through the Roof

For Australian households and businesses being crushed by out-of-control power prices the Paris Climate Agreement is a maniac’s suicide note. With nothing else to justify the $60 billion being thrown in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar, renewable energy rent seekers are clinging to the notion that the deal done in the City of […]

Power Surge: Weather Dependent Wind Power Means Massive Summertime Price Hike for South Australia

  South Australia is renowned for the world’s highest power prices and mass blackouts, thanks to its risible ‘reliance’ on sunshine and breezes. In Australia’s RE capital, sunset and massive, sudden and unpredictable collapses in wind power output not only result in mass load shedding (controlled blackouts), but send spot prices for power into the […]

RE Contagion: Labor Promises to Take South Australia’s Energy Debacle Nationwide with 50% RET

That adding intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is a night follows day, kind of thing. Despite some recent propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy Target. SA’s […]

South Australia’s 50% Renewable Energy Fail: World’s Highest Power Prices Caused by Subsidised Wind & Solar

South Australians suffer the world’s highest power prices because they rely on heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind & solar. It’s a relationship for which the economic backwater has become world renowned. Along with its notoriety as a (notionally) first world economy with a third world power supply. If you’re looking to attack the infantile […]

End of Days: Rocketing Power Prices Spells Armageddon for Subsidised Wind & Solar

Malcolm Turnbull’s downfall resulted from stratospheric power prices, sent into orbit by unreliable and intermittent wind and solar. His fate was sealed when he started spinning the line that his National Energy Guarantee (which would have effectively doubled wind and solar capacity) would result in power being delivered at 1970s prices. The same line is […]

Doomsday: New Energy Minister – Angus Taylor Declares War On Subsidises for Wind & Solar

Angus Taylor’s elevation to Energy Minister is the beginning of the end for subsidised wind and solar in Australia. And the merry mix of zealots and profiteers that people the anti-carbon dioxide industrial complex, surely know it. As every history buff knows, the French Revolution kicked into gear when an angry mob overran the Bastille […]
