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.

Renewable Energy Zealots Furious: Australia’s New PM Determined to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies and Exit Paris Climate ‘Deal’

Ever rocketing power prices were what scuttled Australia’s suicidal renewable energy policies. The National Energy Guarantee was an effort to expand (exponentially) and extend (indefinitely) Australia’s already crippling Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target.

Renewables Reset: Rocketing Power Prices Mean New PM Bound to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies

Australia’s renewable energy policy has just imploded and, with it, the set-in-stone ‘certainty’ craved by renewable energy rent seekers. Never again will wind and solar power outfits be able to rely on the bipartisan support for subsidies to renewables, critical to their ‘business’ models. Generating power at the chaotic whims of nature’s wonder fuels means […]
