Subsidised Wind & Solar Driving Out-of-Control Power Prices: Business Hit With 24% Hike

Australia’s energy policy has been hijacked by lunatics, whose persistent ignorance has left it with out-of-control power prices and a grid all set to collapse. Pinning your energy needs to the weather was never going to pan out all that well. Of the Australian states, South Australia set the benchmark for virtue signalling stupidity; establishing […]

Wind Power Output Collapses Send Power Prices into Orbit: The World’s Biggest Joke Just Got Serious

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. The debacle that started in the renewable energy ‘superpower’, also known as South Australia has broken the border and is spreading fast. New South Wales is now being treated to a lesson on how increasing reliance on the ‘unreliables’ inevitably […]

State Sanctioned Theft: Australia’s Renewable Energy Subsidies a $60bn Wealth Transfer

Selling electricity is a complex caper, permitting a sharp and mercenary few to make out like bandits, at the expense of the gullible many. In Australia, the power market was hijacked around 20 years ago, with the creation of the National Electricity Market. Then the game changed entirely, as chaotic wind and solar were added […]

RE Reality Check: PM’s $10bn Pumped Hydro Plan to Save Wind Industry Doesn’t Hold Water

  Wind and large-scale solar are doomed, but the saviour is said to be pumped hydro; paid for, of course, with other people’s money. Touted by Turnbull and his hapless sidekick, Josh Frydenberg as the Nation’s mega-battery, the heavily-hyped Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro scheme (shelved in the 1970s because it was uneconomic then) has been […]

The BIG Lie: Energy Boffin’s Claims Australia Can Go 100% Renewable = 100% Fantasy

Renewable energy zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future being ‘inevitable’. Except that the only thing inevitable about running on sunshine and breezes, is grid chaos and rocketing power prices. And the reason for that can be all spelt out in a picture: see above the collective output of […]

Australian Business Despairs: Renewables Obsessed Energy Minister Throws Economy to the Wolves

Australia’s Energy Minister, Josh Frydenberg’s obsession with wind and solar is literally crippling his country: rocketing power prices have left tens of thousands of families powerless; and energy hungry businesses are gobsmacked at his every gormless utterance. Threatened by the Monash Forum (a group of 30 or so Liberal and National MPs), Frydenberg has taken […]

Threat to Endless Subsidies Sends Australia’s Renewable Energy Companies Into Meltdown

Wind and solar power were both founded on lies and myth, and can only exist when and where massive subsidies are practically perpetual. Now that it’s become impossible for them to hide the obvious relationship between intermittent wind and solar and rocketing power prices and grid instability, the pleading to maintain the subsidies that sustain them, […]
