Prices Double: Obsession With Subsidised Wind & Solar Causes Runaway Power Prices

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is the product of policies deliberately designed to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies. Massive and seemingly endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar have done what they were designed to do: drive the owners of reliable coal-fired power generators to the wall, by allowing wind and solar […]

No Mystery: Calm Weather & Sunset Root Cause of Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

The relationship between weather-dependent wind/sunshine dependent solar and rocketing power prices is crystal clear, so too the post ‘transition’ phenomenon of power rationing caused by sunset and/or calm weather. Australia isn’t alone in experiencing a power pricing and supply calamity, all its very own making; Germans, Danes and Californians have enjoyed much the same and […]

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 […]

Renewable Energy Rip-Off: How Price Gougers Profit From Sunset & Calm Weather

Intermittent wind and solar are a natural guarantee of grid chaos and rocketing power prices. every single country that’s chased the wind and solar pipe dream has watched their power prices go through the roof, with no exception. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. STT has been banging on about this since December 2012. The […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Deep ‘Green’ Punishment: Power Prices Set To Double In Wind Power Obsessed Britain

Thanks to the UK’s love affair with intermittent wind power, Brit’s power bills will double this April when a legislated price cap is lifted; UK power prices are already amongst the highest in Europe. And there is much worse to come. Instead of coming to grips with its self-inflicted renewable energy calamity, its energy brains […]

Guilty: Intermittent Wind & Solar Responsible For Global Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s ongoing wind drought (and corresponding wind power output collapse) is a wake-up call for anyone vaguely concerned about energy supplies. Starting in September last year and running for weeks on end, total collapses in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, forced a wholesale rethink of the maniacal reliance upon wind and […]

Chaos Costs: Why Intermittent Delivery of Wind & Solar Causes Crippling Power Prices

Add intermittent wind and solar to a power grid and crippling power prices follow, as night follows day. When power generation and delivery was in the hands of engineers, coal and gas-fired plants ran efficiently and costs were low. Now that ideology reigns instead, and lunatics are firmly in charge of the asylum, the efficient […]
