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 […]

Ever Ascendant: True Cost of Unreliable Wind & Solar Continues to Rise Unabated

If wind and solar power were truly competitive with conventional generators, there would be no need for even a nickel in subsidies. The fact they continue unabated says it all. Claims that the cost of wind and solar generation are falling don’t stand a minute’s serious scrutiny. One group that has applied a blowtorch to […]

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 […]

Trumping Turbines: Five Good Reasons to Hate Heavily Subsidised & Chaotically Intermittent Wind Power

You don’t have to be a genius to work out that wind power is the greatest environmental and economic fraud of all time. President of the United States of America, Donald J Trump has been railing about it for years. And he keeps doing so. Much to the disgust and horror of his many detractors. […]
