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 Brainer: Subsidised Wind Power is What’s Driving Your Power Prices Through the Roof

Rocketing power prices and grid instability are two inescapable consequences of subsidised wind and solar. While sunshine and breezes might be free, attempting to run your power system using nature’s gifts, brings with it a raft of other costs which RE zealots tend to gloss over. The electricity generation and distribution system – which wind […]

Don’t Believe The Hype: Britain’s Power Price Hike All Due to Subsidised Wind Power

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Brits are already paying the price for its suicidal renewable energy policies. Under ‘Bonkers’ Boris that price will be positively murderous. His plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power beggars belief. And will turn many on the lower […]

Hide & Seek: Market Distorting Subsidies Conceal True & Staggering Cost of Renewables

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when it’s needed has no commercial value; in the absence of massive subsidies, there’d be no market at all for intermittent wind and solar. As soon as the subsidies to wind and solar get cut, the ‘investment’ in new capacity evaporates, entirely. But it’s those subsidies that distort […]

Power Drain: Risible Reliance on Intermittent Wind & Solar Means Summer Blackouts Beckon

  Subsidised into existence, intermittent wind and solar now pose existential threats to Australia’s once reliable power supply, this summer and beyond.

New Inquisition: Renewable Energy Zealots Can’t Face Facts Like Sunset & Calm Weather

  The Spanish Inquisition literally roasted heretics alive, these days it’s anyone who dares question the mantra that wind and solar power are our only salvation from imminent climate doom.

Victorian Vortex: Wind & Solar Obsession Guarantees Mass Summer Blackouts & Power Prices Soar (Again)

  Following South Australia’s lead on wind and solar was never going to end well. The State that set and met its very own 50% RET is renowned for mass load shedding and Australia’s only statewide blackout. SA also suffers the world’s highest power prices. So, it should come as no surprise to Victorians that […]

Policy Burn Out: Rocketing Power Prices Product of Government Obsession with Unreliable Wind & Solar

“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help”. So said Ronald Reagan, the folksy and affable 40th President of the USA. And, so it’s been with energy policy in the USA, Australia, Europe and dozens of other places where lobbyists took control of politicians and […]

Unbearable Burden: Mounting Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Crushing Poorest Power Consumers

It’s an unassailable fact: add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and power prices skyrocket. South Australians, Danes and Germans fight for line honours over which of their proletariat suffers the world’s highest power prices. As to the Australian states hooked up to the Eastern Grid, Dr Michael Crawford’s simple […]

On The Level: Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Increase Power Prices

The relationship between rocketing power prices and chaotically intermittent wind and solar is crystal clear. Let’s call it Germany, Denmark and South Australia, where wind and solar obsessions have driven power prices into orbit. While RE zealots continue to chant the mantra that wind and solar are practically free, and getting cheaper all the time, […]
