Wind Power an Even Bigger Waste of Money Than Originally Projected

Wind turbines, wind mills

Wind power is expensive, unreliable, decimates local wildlife populations, and requires additional fossil fuel generation for backup. Despite its many shortcomings, green warriors love it, but will they love this? An analysis of almost 3,000 onshore wind turbines warns that wind turbines will only generate electricity effectively for 12 to 15 years.

Manufacturers and advocates promised 20-25 years of expensive electricity. Cut that in half. Then consider this.

“…the efficiency rating of a turbine based on the percentage of electricity it actually produces compared with its theoretical maximum — is reduced from 24 percent in the first 12 months of operation to just 11 percent after 15 years.

Even less efficient electricity for fewer years. Aren’t you glad you let the Climate Cult berate you into “investing” (at gunpoint) in the green economy? The green energy money laundering scam. More money, fewer jobs, less electricity, higher electric rates, and likely to fail halfway through the advertised lifespan.

Only government could ever love those numbers. Thank god for solar, which creates waste more toxic than nuclear.

The planet is saved.
