There Is No Plan B: Why Battery Storage Can’t Save Intermittent Wind & Solar

Carpetbaggers profiting from hopelessly intermittent wind and solar still claim that mega-batteries are the solution to their obvious lack of reliability. But it only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. It hasn’t occurred anywhere in the world; nor will it.

Utterly Shameless: Solar Plant Operators Rip-Up & Desecrate Hundreds of American War Graves

Devouring whole tracts of countryside, often from horizon to horizon, to produce a trickle of electricity for no more than six hours a day (in the US the average capacity factor for solar is 24.7%), is bad enough. But the […]
