Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Are The World’s Most Expensive (Occasional) Power Sources

The Sun and wind might be free, but wind and solar power are by far the most expensive power sources, of them all. Diffuse and dilute – entirely dependent on the weather (wind – in the case of wind power, and cloud cover in the case of solar) and, in solar’s case, where the Sun […]

Big Fat Liars: Mainstream Media Deliberately Conceal True Cost of Intermittent Wind & Solar

When it comes to the true cost of wind and solar, most journalists adopt the adage about people believing big lies when they’re told the same lie, repeatedly. Every country in the world that’s committed to wind and solar has watched its power prices rocket and their grids become increasingly unreliable and unstable. Ask a […]

Wind Turbines & Solar Panels Deliver Tiny Fraction of Their Total Capacity

There’s a yawning gulf between what wind turbines and solar panels are capable of delivering and what’s actually delivered. Sunset and calm weather will do it every time. Terms like “capacity factor” and the “Levelized Cost Of Energy” are bandied about with great scientific certitude by renewable energy rent-seekers. As to the first, wind and […]

Reality Bites: Americans Finally Waking Up to the Nightmare Cost of Unreliable Wind and Solar

The wind and sun may be free, but wind and solar power are anything but. Hidden ‘green’ taxes, costs and charges, not to mention massive subsidies redirected from both taxpayers and power consumers to wind and solar generators are just the beginning. The market distortions created by those subsidies have wrecked the ability of conventional […]

The Great Pretenders: Intermittent Wind & Solar Simply Can’t Compete with Coal & Gas & Nuclear

Oh yes, they’re the great pretenders: useless in calm weather or after the sun goes down, wind and solar can never really compete with coal, nuclear or gas. And anyone trying to convince you otherwise, ought to be gently encouraged to seek psychiatric help. Especially after America’s big freeze left millions of wind and solar […]

Wind Industry Claims Scorched: Wind Power Costs Are Increasing Not Decreasing

The true cost of wind power is staggering and, despite wild claims to the contrary, is becoming more even expensive, not less so. Dr John Constable and Gordon Hughes have done what the mainstream media have never done and what renewable energy rent seekers would rather they didn’t: they’ve opened the books of account to […]
