New puppet government, same lunacy

How Labour’s wind farming will be ‘astonishingly wasteful’

Intro by Steve Cook

Labour, with fewer votes than they got in 2019 nevertheless find themselves the globalist front group ruining the nation on behalf of their parasitic financial overlords and are all set to continue the dismantling so fervently begun by the corrupt Tories.

One of the main lines of attack in th country’s programmed impoverishment is the  dimwitted “Net Zero” strategy. This  is a “solution” rolled out for a made-up “problem”, which is guaranteed to leave the economy an eviscerated mess. A key part of this very thinly disguised attack on our country was to pick as part of the “solution” the most inadequate, unworkable, expensive and environmentally damaging energy source they could find.

And so we wind up with a Labour government determined to push ahead with wind expansion in the teeth of –  or evidently because  of – the destruction it will cause to our economy.

We’ve just had an election and changed the wrecking crew but nothing meaningful has changed – not even the shallow rhetoric they use to smoke-screen their destructive intent. We are still  governed by dimwits, crooks and globalist puppets.

This from Net Zero Watch will give you more insight into the ongoing lunacy. I highly recommend a visit to their website.

Labour’s wind expansion will be ‘astonishingly wasteful’

Net Zero Watch says that Labour’s plans for a vast expansion of the windfarm fleet will be highly wasteful. This is because, at times when the wind is blowing strongly, too much power will be produced, and windfarms will be forced to switch off. They will therefore need to earn their income at other times, and will have to increase their prices to cover their costs.

The UK wholesale market is seeing a rapidly rising number of periods of overproduction, and this is thought to be the main reason that offshore windfarms demanded, and received, a 60% price increase in the renewables auctions.

Net Zero Watch director Andrew Montford said:

We have no economic means to store surplus electricity on the necessary scale, so Labour’s plans will simply drive up costs. Millions of megawatt hours of potential production are going to be thrown away. It’s astonishingly wasteful and will add billions of pounds to consumer bills.

Notes

1. Net Zero Watch has estimated that a fourfold expansion of wind power would lead to overproduction of around 30 terawatt hours of electricity each year.

2. Windfarms’ annual costs are almost all incurred regardless of their output, so a reduction in output means a higher price must be charged on each unit. The overproduction that Labour’s expansion of wind power would cause would mean that windfarms would have to switch off much more often. The unit cost of wind power would therefore rise, from around £100 to around £150 per megawatt hour.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
