What’s the biggest cause for your inflated Hydro Bill? ….. Wind Power!!!!

Posted: April 25, 2013 in Uncategorized

To listen to the Wind Industry and it’s gaggle of idiots who continually preach that Wind Energy is free, clean, and green, one may be duped into believing the world would be literally a Paradise if all the electricity would be generated by Solar and Wind only!

Bullshit!

Here’s a simple yet glaring reality that says it all. Your huge Hydro Bills are directly connected to the outrageous and basically criminal introduction of Industrial Wind Turbine generation into our energy mix!

See your Global Adjustment item on your bill.

Therein lies the truth of all that’s wrong with this RIP-OFF!

The Big Wind Rip-Off!

“It would be more accurate to point out that a megawatt of wind-generated electricity received a Global Adjustment of $74 in 2011, according to the Ontario Power Authority. A megawatt of nuclear-generated electricity received a Global Adjustment of $26. In other words, electricity generated by wind power received a Global Adjustment nearly three times the adjustment for nuclear.”

Global Adjustment: Comparison by Energy Source, 2011

Electricity source Global Adjustment per MW ($)     Energy Production (TWh)     Share of electrical supply (%)

Wind                                     74                                             5                                         3

Hydro                                    62                                           34                                         22

Gas                                       54                                           22                                        15

Nuclear                                  26                                           85                                        57

Other (incl. coal)                    N/A                                            5                                         3

  1. “Enronesque” behaviour to screw consumers out f their hard earned money……..maybe these “fraudsters” will follow the trail that Enron’s crooks took…….. straight to prison!

    Worry not, it will likely soon become the far more heavily subsidized Solar projects inflating electiricity bills across Ontario as they pad the pocketbooks of not only unaccountable municipal corporations and their local pets Ontario-wide, but also the heavyweight international power producers whose latter-day solar interests in Ontario were timely additions to those already generating them profits from oil, natural gas and even their shares in nuclear projects like Bruce.

    In case anyone missed it, this was hinted at in the testimony provided by Chris Breen of TransCanada Energy (TCE), during the “gas plant relocation” hearings the morning of April 25, 2013.

    Convenient that all this was “under development” towards the ultimate Solar fleecing of every individual, residential electricity consumer in Ontario, while public focus was on the Wind projects that were already on their way out of favour, worldwide?
