Windy Monday in Ontario and the Liberals let it BLOW AWAY $10 million of your dollars!!!

Posted: November 26, 2014 in Uncategorized

Pray it doesn’t blow any more than it did on Monday of this week. Across Ontario the Wind Turbines were basically spinning a “golden thread” for the small group of Wind Investors hand picked by our Liberal rulers to make huge amounts of money off the broken backs of Ontario workers and families!

 

To the tune of 10 MILLION dollars?…..say it ain’t so Joe……………………but it is……………….and as the majority Government haunting Queen’s park these days would say to themselves…………”Thanks SUCKERS!

Ontario’s $10-million DAY

Ontario: more to worry about than inside-out umbrellas
Ontario: more to worry about than inside-out umbrellas

Ontario throws another $10 million into the wind—in just one day

The wind was howling throughout Ontario November 24, 2014 and the wind turbines were cranking out power that Ontario didn’t need.  It cost Ontario’s ratepayers over $10 million dollars for just one day.

Wind generated 45,527 megawatt hours (MWh) that day and another 7,200 MWh were constrained.  At $135/MWh the power generated cost about $6.1 million and the constrained wind production cost another $900,000.

At the same time, Ontario was steaming off 6 to 7,000 MWh at Bruce Nuclear paying for that, and paying idling gas plants designed to back up wind and solar generation  The former represented a cost to ratepayers of about $400,000 and the latter about $3.7 million.  The foregoing costs came to about $11.1 million for just that one day.

While that was happening, Ontario was exporting our excess MWh and that day we supplied Michigan, New York, Quebec, etc. with 65,616 MWh at an average price of $11.18 (not a weighted average) generating revenue of about $700,000. In short, the day cost Ontario’s ratepayers well over $10 million with the other exported 20,000 MWh costs factored in.

Energy Minister Chiarelli should inform Finance Minister Sousa that he knows where that missing $509 million in the underground economy is going and just who is responsible!

    I was wondering how much those windmills cost. I noticed last year, going through the Tantramar that some of them weren’t working.’

    In Amherst Nova Scotia they spent $61Million for 17 wind turbines on the flatlands just out of town heading towards New Brunswick border… they plopped them in a flood plain .. and they seem to need to do this to build their plans of switching to a certain % of renewable energy generation by a certain date .. often 2020 .. its amazing how often 2020 comes up huh?
