Prices Double: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Causes Runaway Power Prices

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is the product of policies deliberately designed to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies. Massive and seemingly endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar have done what they were designed to do: drive the owners of reliable coal-fired power generators to the wall, by allowing wind and solar […]

No Mystery: Calm Weather & Sunset Root Cause of Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

The relationship between weather-dependent wind/sunshine dependent solar and rocketing power prices is crystal clear, so too the post ‘transition’ phenomenon of power rationing caused by sunset and/or calm weather. Australia isn’t alone in experiencing a power pricing and supply calamity, all its very own making; Germans, Danes and Californians have enjoyed much the same and […]

Renewable Energy Rip-Off: How Price Gougers Profit From Sunset & Calm Weather

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. every single country that’s chased the wind and solar pipe dream has watched their power prices go through the roof, with no exception. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. STT has been banging on about this since December 2012. The […]

The Hard Data: Why Subsidised Wind & Solar Inevitably Drive Power Prices Into Orbit

The relationship between rocketing power prices and heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar couldn’t be clearer. Every country that’s embarked on the so-called ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future is suffering from surging power prices. Add wind and solar generating capacity and watch power prices go into orbit, as […]

Guilty: Intermittent Wind & Solar Responsible For Global Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s ongoing wind drought (and corresponding wind power output collapse) is a wake-up call for anyone vaguely concerned about energy supplies. Starting in September last year and running for weeks on end, total collapses in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, forced a wholesale rethink of the maniacal reliance upon wind and […]

Chaos Costs: Why Intermittent Delivery of Wind & Solar Causes Crippling Power Prices

Add intermittent wind and solar to a power grid and crippling power prices follow, as night follows day. When power generation and delivery was in the hands of engineers, coal and gas-fired plants ran efficiently and costs were low. Now that ideology reigns instead, and lunatics are firmly in charge of the asylum, the efficient […]

Power Market Manipulators Reap Windfall Whenever Wind & Solar Power Output Falls

When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in, the price gouging by the owners of reliable power generation plant, begins. When those paragons of corporate virtue that ran Enron started ripping off Californian power consumers during the late 1990s, they did it by shutting down gas pipelines and pretending gas-fired power plants were off-line […]

All Time High: Wind & Solar Obsession Triples Power Costs to German Industry & Domestic Prices Highest in Europe

In another ‘proof is in the pudding moment’, wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. German households suffer the highest prices in Europe. And, over the last 20 years, the prices paid by German industry have almost tripled. Faced with the choice between going broke or going elsewhere, Germany’s world-renowned […]

Sunshine’s Free: But Solar Power’s More Than Double the Cost of Fossil Fuels and Nuclear

Sure, sunshine may be free, but solar power is the most expensive stuff around. And, of course, when the sky clouds up or the sun sets, solar power simply can’t be bought at any price. Assume, for the moment, the wind always blew and the sun always shone, then wind and solar power just might […]

Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices

The only things ‘inevitable’ about ‘transitioning’ to wind and solar are rocketing power prices, load shedding and mass blackouts. Ask a German or South Australian. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, […]
