Wind Turbines & Solar Panels Deliver Tiny Fraction of Their Total Capacity

There’s a yawning gulf between what wind turbines and solar panels are capable of delivering and what’s actually delivered. Sunset and calm weather will do it every time. Terms like “capacity factor” and the “Levelized Cost Of Energy” are bandied about with great scientific certitude by renewable energy rent-seekers. As to the first, wind and […]

Woeful Wind: New Data Shows Wind Power Output Is Pathetic Across UK & Europe

Adding wind power generating capacity is one occasion when ‘more’, truly means ‘less’. No matter how much of other people’s money gets spent spearing wind turbines all over the countryside, the result is the same: whether it’s 10,000 or 100,000 MW of available wind power capacity, when calm weather sets in, the combined output adds […]

Kiwi Wind Farms ‘Lazy as Bro’: New Zealand’s Wind Turbines Produce Nothing 80% Of The Time

  Never there when you need it, often there when you don’t, wind power is, at best, an infantile joke. Promised output figures are rarely realised. What’s referred to as the “capacity factor” of any given wind farm is said to represent a proportional, and meaningful, contribution to electricity demand. Except, instead of powering the […]
