Renewable Energy Obsession Means Brits Pay £10.8 Billion in Wind & Solar Subsidies Every Year

Unreliable, inefficient and insanely costly, there’s plenty to dislike about subsidised wind and solar. British power prices have rocketed; ‘reliability’ is now just a catchphrase; energy poverty is the new normal; and its PM, Boris Johnson apparently couldn’t care less. Indeed, he seems even more fixated on unreliable and unaffordable power, than his predecessors. Dr […]

Pricing Vanity: Power Consumers Punished By Obscene Cost of Wind Farm Subsidies

The virtue signalling wind power advocate reckons that the wind is free, but the pointless Vanity Project that is industrial wind power comes with a staggering pricetag. And it’s the power consumer that’s always left to pick up the tab. While the increasingly whopping number staring out from a power bill can hardly be concealed, […]

No Free Lunch: The Truly Gobsmacking Cost of Generating Offshore Wind Power

Effervescent claims that offshore wind power is cheap have fallen flat. When the rising capital cost of taking wind turbines offshore is accounted for, the power that they occasionally generate turns out to be the most expensive electricity of all, and by a very substantial margin. A couple of years back in the UK, rent […]

World’s Biggest Scams: Scotland’s Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 To NOT Produce Power

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power.

Daylight Robbery: UK Wind Farms Paid £9.3million To Shut Down Their Turbines For A Single Day

In the history of commerce, there’s never been a financial scam that comes anywhere near rivalling subsidised wind power.

But scamming fools with too good to be true offers is nothing […]

Never Competitive: Britain’s Wind Industry Begs For Even More Massive Subsidies

The wind industry was founded on lies, built on myth and runs on subsidies. ‘Propaganda’ was conjured up by a Catholic Pope, employed with devastating effect by the Nazis and still maintains control over the masses in China. But it wasn’t until the wind industry switched into gear that propaganda really hit its straps. Being […]

Post Modern Power: Scots Face Whopping Bill For Government’s Wind Power Obsession

Scotland’s energy policy was hijacked by lunatics and the canny Scot, renowned for their parsimony, is paying a very heavy price, indeed. The subsidies paid to wind power outfits have been colossal; and all that state-mandated largess is being tacked onto Scottish power bills and/or picked up by taxpayers, south of the border. One of […]

Cash Cow: UK Wind Farms Paid £650,000,000 in ‘Constraint Payments’ To NOT Produce Power

Europe’s Energy Crisis: Counting the Staggering Cost of Subsidising Unreliable Wind & Solar

Adding inherently unreliable and heavily subsidised wind and solar to your grid is a guarantee of rocketing power prices. Every place in the world that got serious about wind and solar is being belted with serious increases in electricity costs. Wind and solar ‘powered’ Germany and wind ‘powered’ Denmark pay Europe’s highest power prices, by […]

‘Green’ Energy Fail: Counting the Staggering Cost of Britain’s CO2 Emissions Reduction Policy

When it comes to reducing carbon dioxide gas, wind power is touted as the perfect panacea – turns out it’s an abject failure on that score, too. Leaving aside arguments about whether CO2 is a toxic pollutant or a naturally occurring beneficial trace gas which plants crave, the primary object of Britain’s effort to power […]
