A Token Gesture To The Folly Of Green Madness

It doesn’t matter what is true,
it only matters what people believe is true

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world

Data released from one of the largest green energy companies, RWE npower renewables, shows that some large scale industrial wind farms are producing enough electricity only to make a few cups of tea at a time.

And as if it wasn’t bad enough having greedy rent-seeking corporatist vampires and Big Government joining forces to squeeze the blood out of the taxpayer to fund useless and inefficient ‘feel-good’ delusions. Now greedy windmills are sucking the very electricity out of the grid that they are meant to be feeding back, in order to run basic power supplies on site! A phenomenon known in the industry as “parasitic consumption”.

Wind Farms, a true token gesture to the folly of green madness …

Data released by one of the largest green energy companies shows wind farms producing enough electricity only to boil two to three kettles at a time.

At one stage last week, three big wind farms even took electricity out of the National Grid– to run basic power supplies on site – rather than actually supplying electricity to households.

The wind farms’ owner said that in still conditions electricity “import” can occur for a few hours until the wind picks up. Such a phenomenon is known in the industry as “parasitic consumption”.

The figures show just how little electricity giant turbines produce at certain times bolstering claims by critics that wind turbines cannot be relied upon to provide a constant source of electricity.

The Telegraph examined a snapshot of RWE’s own figures on Thursday afternoon last week. One wind farm Trysglwyn, which is in Anglesey in Wales, was producing a total of 6 kilowatts (KW) – just enough to boil two kettles each with 3KW of power.

The wind farm has 14 turbines and a theoretical capacity of 5.6 megawatts (MW). In other words, the wind farm was producing just 0.001 per cent of its maximum capacity.

Wind farms love storms – turn turbines off and get paid 10 or more times as much for not producing anything

ENERGY firms netted a £1million windfall from the taxpayer as last week’s killer storm ripped across the country.

After 80mph gales swept southern Britain, leaving 500,000 homes without power, much of the electricity generated by the biggest wind farms was deemed surplus to the needs of the National Grid.

That triggered compensation payments to some of the Big Six energy companies, who are major investors in the on-shore wind industry. The handouts, known as constraint payments, totalled almost £1million over 24 hours.

That brings the total paid out to wind farm owners for unused electricity this year to £26million.

The compensation deal will enrage hard-pressed homeowners at a time when they are being hit by inflation-busting price rises of up to 27 per cent.

Tory MP Chris Heaton-Harris, who spearheads the parliamentary campaign against on-shore wind farms, branded the payments an outrage. Continue Reading »

If greens love nature, why aren’t they more concerned about carpeting pristine landscapes with industrial wind turbines?

Millions of trees have been chopped down to clear the way for wind farms in Scotland’s countryside since Alex Salmond came to power, according to official figures published today.

The Forestry Commission has disclosed that more than 6,200 acres (2,510 hectares) of trees north of the Border have been felled to allow the construction of wind farms since 2007.

With the commission estimating that on average 810 trees are planted per acre, this is the equivalent of more than five million being chopped down.

Over the same period, fewer than 2,000 acres of trees have been replanted within wind farm sites. This means there has been net loss of around 3.4 million trees to make way for turbines. Continue Reading »
