UNreliables continue their pathetic rise to the rank of the most insane and costly joke to ‘fix’ a fake “crisis”.
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 putative hundreds of thousands of homes, the vast majority of the time, wind farms are powering absolutely nothing.
Instead, they’re consuming electricity from the grid to maintain their on-board systems, such as heating, cooling and braking – in order to prevent ‘component liberation’ – eg:

Aside from being the country’s youngest Prime Minister in almost 200 years, Jacinda Arden is already outlining plans to commit civilizational suicide by joining with countries such as France, Great Britain, Germany and India in their quest to end use fossil fuels.
Newshub reports that Jacinda Arden has announced that this year might be the last that block offers will be made for petroleum exploration. A block offer is a permit issued annually by New Zealand’s government that allows petroleum companies to explore for and extract petroleum and natural gas in certain onshore and offshore areas around the island.
