Europe’s Biggest Solar Company Goes Up In Smoke

More Proof that Novelty Energy is NOT Sustainable!

Watts Up With That?

Meanwhile: African Nations To Build More Than 100 New Coal Power Plants

Germany’s SolarWorld, once Europe’s biggest solar power equipment group, said on Wednesday it would file for insolvency, overwhelmed by Chinese rivals who had long been a thorn in the side of founder and CEO Frank Asbeck, once known as “the Sun King”. A renewed wave of cheap Chinese exports, caused by reduced ambitions in China to expand solar power generation, was too much to bear for the group, which made its last net profit in 2014. —Reuters, 11 May 2017

The company once hailed as Europe’s largest solar panel producer filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, blaming cheap Chinese panels for flooding the market. SolarWorld is only the latest bankrupt solar company to blame the Chinese. U.S.-based Suniva Inc. filed for bankruptcy in April, also citing stiff competition from Chinese solar panel makers. The solar industry’s biggest problem is…

A Letter from a Victim of Wind, and Wynne…

Wind turbines a government-backed Ponzi scheme

Posted: 06 Mar 2017 08:00 AM PST

North Bay Nugget
All you people out there complaining about your hydro prices need to realize some important facts about the Kathleen Wynne government.

  1. The global adjustment charge on your hydro bill is to pay for the giant industrial wind turbines Wynne  has placed all  over rural Ontario.
  2. Wind turbines a useless technology that destroys our rural environment, ruins people’s health and poisons our drinking water aquifers.
  3. The only reason these turbines were erected was so Liberal insiders and their friends could get filthy rich.
  4. Wynne will not cancel the turbine projects or reduce the subsidies because the turbine lobbyists know where the political bodies are buried.
  5. Wynne has taken away the democratic rights of the people for her own financial and political gain.
  6. Wynne has sacrificed the health of rural citizens just so her friends can get rich.
  7. In a few year’s time, when it inevitably collapses, this wind turbine scam will be revealed for what it is: An enormous government-backed Ponzi scheme, founded on greed, corruption and stupidity.

Germany’s Wind Power Debacle Worsens: Too Much Power One Day, None the Next

Novelty Energy….Not fit for prime time!

STOP THESE THINGS

It doesn’t just look chaotic, it is …

***

Like South Australians, Germans are attempting to run on sunshine and breezes and in both places the results have been an unmitigated disaster. When power output depends on the weather and whether the sun is up and the sky isn’t clouded up, results can, as they say in marketing blurbs, ‘vary’.

During January of this year, wind and solar power output totally collapsed for days on end and pushed the German grid to the brink of collapse. The Daily Caller reported at the time that:

Germany’s power grid almost collapsed in January due to poor performance from wind turbines and solar panels, according to data from a major trade union.

Wind and solar power plants under-performed in January, 2017, because of cloudy weather with little or no wind, setting the stage for massive blackouts.

A major blackout almost occurred Jan. 24…

Vermonters Vent Fury at the Wind Industry’s Constant Stream of Lies

Brilliant! Time for the Wind Industry to get used to the new “Era of Accountability!”

STOP THESE THINGS

Annette Smith is Executive Director of Vermonters for a Clean Environment, Inc. She is the Burlington Free Press’s 2016 Vermonter of the Year. And, having graced these pages many times, an STT Champion.

The winds of woe

27 April 2017

Prospective neighbors of wind turbines heard all the promises: “Quiet as a library.” “Like a baby’s breath.” “The same decibel level as a refrigerator.” The more brazen wind developers claimed “you will not hear them.”

Then the four hundred and fifty foot wind towers with their bus-size nacelles and three-bladed fans were built. Sixteen in Sheffield, four on Georgia Mountain, twenty-one in Lowell. And neighbors learned the truth. Yes, you can hear them. They sound like “a jet plane that never lands,” or “sneakers in a…

Top Sleep Specialist Slams ‘Nocebo’ Nonsense: Wind Turbine Noise Obvious Cause of Sleep Deprivation

STOP THESE THINGS

Dr Wayne Spring is a sleep specialist with a lifetime’s experience of dealing with those suffering from sleep deprivation from all manner of causes. Recently, Dr Spring went into print, slamming those from the wind-cult who spend their time deriding the wind industry’s victims, rather than listening.

One of its victims, who will never be silenced, is STT Champion, Annie Gardner who let rip in the Hamilton Spectator with this thumping letter to the editor, picking up Dr Spring’s sharpest points along the way.

WIND TURBINE IMPACTS ECHO SEASICKNESS
Hamilton Spectator
29 April 2017

IT’S most important that Dr Wayne Spring’s willingness to expose his experience of treating many wind farm victims, referred to him for sleep deprivation, is released to the people in your readership area, particularly as so many will become exposed to the same problems particularly around Macarthur and Oaklands Hill. Below are excerpts from Dr Wayne…

Michigan Mauling: Desperate Developers Throw $Millions at Pro-Wind Propaganda But Huron County Votes 2:1 Against Wind Power Plans

Wonderful Push-back Against the “Windweasels”!

STOP THESE THINGS

Huron County’s ‘welcoming committee’ rolls up the red carpet…

***

The wind industry is being belted on all fronts, the world over; whether it’s governments slashing subsidies or communities lashing back, wind power outfits are under siege, and the threat is mortal.

In the United States, the rolling fury in communities threatened by the rollout of giant industrial wind turbines is palpable and spreading. We’ll start with The Daily Caller’s Andrew Follett.

Small Towns Fight Back Against World’s Largest Green Energy Company

Andrew Follett
2 May 2017

Two rural Michigan towns are holding a referendum Tuesday on whether or not to block two of the world’s largest green energy companies from building wind turbines.

The vote could stop the companies DTE Energy and NextEra Energy from building 70 new wind turbines in Huron County. The county already has 550 wind turbines, but residents opposed to more wind…

South Australia’s Wind Power Crisis Continues: Gas Generators Forced to Fire Up to Prevent Another Statewide Blackout

When will people figure out that “Novelty energy” will not do the job?

STOP THESE THINGS

Energy Australia’s OCGT’s at Hallett: being paid to burn gas for nothing.

***

South Australians wake up to a nightmare every day. Its hapless Labor government’s obsession with wind power has destroyed the reliability of its electricity grid and sent power prices through the roof. Here’s why.

SA power: Gas generators ordered on as South Australia’s wind production peaked
ABC News
Nick Harmsen
26 April 2017

The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) was forced to intervene in South Australia’s electricity market on Anzac Day to guarantee security of the grid as the state recorded record levels of wind energy production.

Wind power peaked at a new high of 1,540 megawatts close to midnight on Tuesday, more than meeting the state’s public holiday electricity demand.

The wind production was so high that earlier in the day AEMO took steps to ensure two gas generators remained on.

“A combination of high wind…
