Lessons from the UK & SA – How to Destroy Power Supplies & Economies: Start with Subsidised Wind Power

Pinning its hopes to a wholly weather dependent power source – that requires 100% of its capacity to be backed up 100% of the time by conventional generation sources – Britain’s energy ‘policy’ was never going to end well. Already faced with an unstable grid and rocketing power prices thanks to its gamble on wind […]

Freefall: Wind Power Investment Collapses in Europe

In a ‘what goes around comes around’ kind of way, it’s fitting that the great wind power fraud is taking European ‘investors’ – of the Energreen mold – to the cleaners. The subsidies have run out and, as night follows day, investors are racing to the exits – which brings the greatest Ponzi scheme of […]

Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario Wind Power Fantasy Doubles Power Prices

**** Ontario was, once upon a time, an agricultural and manufacturing power house. Alas, the former pursuit has been smashed by plummeting property values and sonic torture, making thousands of farm homes uninhabitable; the latter endeavour has been demolished by power costs that have risen 108% due to the fantasy of trying to rely on […]

Spanish Wind Power Outfit – Iberdola – Pockets $2.2 BILLION in Taxpayer Funded Corporate Welfare

Under the most colossal single industry subsidy scheme in the history of the Commonwealth, power consumers […]

**** In their sillier moments, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers pitch the line that their pointless product is not only getting cheaper all the time, but go so far as to claim that wind power is already cheaper than gas and coal-fired power. Risible PR antics aside, the wind industry has always had […]

MIT Study Shows Wind Power Can NEVER Compete with Conventional Sources

In their sillier moments, the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers pitch the line that their pointless product is not only getting cheaper all the time, but go so far as to claim that wind power is already cheaper than gas and coal-fired power. Risible PR antics aside, the wind industry has always had a […]

UK’s Wind Power Gamble Ends in Power Supply Bankruptcy

Until David Cameron’s Conservatives took full control of the UK Parliament, Britain had lumped every last chip on wind power: apparently hoping that a wholly weather dependent power source, that requires 100% of its capacity to be backed up 100% of the time by conventional (dispatchable) power sources, would come up trumps and lead to […]
