By Brent Smith Let me first set the record straight. I have no problem with any form of energy. We can use it all – coal, oil, gas, geothermal, hydroelectric, biomass and, yes, even solar and wind.

Wind and Solar Electricity Cost Twice as Much as Conventional Power Plants

Wind and Solar Electricity Cost Twice as Much as Conventional Power Plants

    By Institute for Energy Research Summary of key points: “Intermittent” Wind and Solar resources increase the Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of “full-time power plants”  by reducing their utilization rates ……….without reducing their fixed costs, resulting in a levelized fixed cost increase. Our calculations estimate that the “imposed cost” of wind generation is […]

Costly Wind Power Menaces Man and Nature

  Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris Wind energy can never replace fossil fuels, despite claims of environmentalists and advocates of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal (GND). It’s not environment-friendly either. Indeed, wind power is hampered by many limitations, including: * its intermittent and inefficient nature * insufficient sites with adequate, reliable wind * acreage […]
