Transmission Loss: $Billions Squandered Connecting Remote & Intermittent Wind & Solar

Untold $billions are being squandered to connect unreliable, intermittent and diffuse, wind and solar to power grids; grids that were working just fine before the unreliables turned up. The wind and solar industries spear turbines and plaster panels way beyond the back of beyond. Increasingly remote locations for wind and solar generators require serious upgrades […]

Connection Made: Consumers Suffer Hidden Transmission Costs For Wind & Solar

The wind and solar industries spear turbines and plaster panels way beyond the back of beyond. Increasingly remote locations for wind and solar generators require serious upgrades to transmission infrastructure, adding hundreds of $millions to transmission costs, that would have otherwise been avoided, had Australia simply stuck with conventional generators and not squandered $60,000,000,000 in subsidies to […]

Subsidy Bonanza: Wind Industry Demands Even More Subsidies for Pointless Transmission Lines

Now, the wind industry wants even more subsidies to pay for the transmission lines that would allow it to send its chaotic wares halfway across Australia. The claim is that another so-called ‘interconnector’ will help South Australian wind power outfits to deliver […]
