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!
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
