Total Failure: Britain’s Grand ‘Cheap’ Wind Power Plan Faces Total Collapse

If wind power is so ‘cheap’, then why is it that retail power prices continue to rocket in every country attempting to run on breezes? There are, as this site has pointed out over the last decade, myriad reasons, starting with the fact that wind power can only be delivered as and when Mother Nature […]

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 […]

No Escape: How Households Suffer Astronomical Cost of Great Wind & Solar Scam

Working out what households pay for subsidies to wind and solar is a task, in itself. Naturally, the crony capitalists that profit from the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, are keen to conceal the extent of the state-sponsored larceny from their unwitting victims. To the same end, their political enablers often talk […]

Inevitable Transition: Why Intermittent Wind Power Drives Power Prices Through The Roof

Every country attempting to run on wind and solar suffers rocketing power prices; no exception. In Britain, power prices jumped 50%, overnight, when a legislated price cap was lifted; and power prices continue to rise at an astonishing rate. Subsidised wind power is at the heart of Britain’s power pricing and supply calamity. Pete North […]

Blown Away: Counting The Cost of Europe’s Self-Made Renewable Energy Crisis

Europe’s insatiable appetite for unreliable wind and solar has left Europeans hungry for any kind of power, provided it’s available on demand. The French have rebooted investment in their 56 existing nuclear plants and are planning a further 14 to add to their enviable fleet. The Brits and the Germans are stoking up their ‘ageing’ […]

Why Wind Power Output Collapses Are Causing Europe’s Power Prices to Rocket

Rocketing power prices were inevitable once Europe decided to put all its energy eggs in the wind power basket. Europe has squandered billions on subsidies to construct tens of thousands of turbines both onshore and off – the Germans managed to spear more than 30,000 across their homeland and are paying a hefty price. By […]

Reaping The Whirlwind: Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession Sends Power Prices Rocketing

Europeans have squandered untold $billions on chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The only evident results being routine power rationing, blackouts and power prices doubling every 12 months, or so. The article below from Bloomberg lays it out fairly clearly: those countries obsessed with wind and solar are literally reaping the whirlwind, as power prices spiral […]

UK’s Costly Grid Chaos Continues, As Wind Power Continually Fails to Deliver

Start placing serious reliance on wind power and you can safely place your bets on daily disappointment. Such it is in Britain, with month upon month of pitiful performance from its fleet of whirling wonders. During most of September and into October, Europe’s wind farms were the victims of the Big Calm. The Wind Gods […]

Short-Changed: $Billions Spent On Wind & Solar Return Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

All cost and no benefit, chaotically intermittent wind and solar are proven net losers. And yet, the Climate Industrial Complex keeps telling us that the unreliables are central to ‘saving’ the planet. On that score, rather than coming straight out with it, crony capitalists and political elites use the euphemism ‘climate action’. What they really […]

Wind & Solar Suicide Squad’s Deliberate Destruction Of Europe’s Power Supply

If the wind and solar rent-seekers destroying our power supplies know what they’re doing, it’s criminal; if they don’t, it’s still criminal. However, the penalty is not borne by them, but by you and me. Where the premise for part-time power is said to be a looming climate ‘catastrophe’, it’s the power supply catastrophe that […]
