UK: ‘Switch off the mind and let the heart decide…’*
…a perfect recipe for expensive stuff-ups.
Data released by one of the largest green energy companies shows wind farms producing enough electricity only to boil two to three kettles at a time.
At one stage last week, three big wind farms even took electricity out of the National Grid – to run basic power supplies on site – rather than actually supplying electricity to households.
The wind farms’ owner said that in still conditions electricty “import” can occur for a few hours until the wind picks up. Such a phenomenon is known in the industry as “parasitic consumption”.
Which is a wonderful way to describe the whole Green AGW ramp.
Apologies though to *Thomas Dolby, who whatever his politics has still written a damn good song.
