It is still winter in New Zealand, and last night there was a major power outage in the country, leaving tens of thousands of homes without power. Apparently, they use electricity to heat their homes, and last night was one of the coldest days of the year. And one of the major electrical providers is warning that more outages may be on the way, stating that, ‘that the emergency was far from over.’ Apparently, power supplies were running tight. So what could be the cause of these electrify shortfalls? Could it be the result of a woke Prime Minister, consumed by ideology and a lack of common sense, who has the country getting 84% of its power from expensive and unreliable green energy that only works when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining? Of course, the government is also pushing electric vehicles, and the country’s energy minister was quick to point out that these green vehicles, that are often recharged overnight, were not the cause of the shortfall.

With many governments jumping on the green energy bandwagon these days, what do citizens have to look forward to? Well, if California is any indication, two things are guaranteed: Higher energy prices and blackouts.
In his post on Not Alot of People Know That, Paul Homewood shows how the failure of Green energy resulted in catastrophic blackouts in Texas, during the winter storm last week. It was not the failure in natural gas energy as the main stream media is peddling. Homewood did something a bit unusual, he actually looked at the data.
When you think of Texas, you think of a state full of oil and natural gas, so why are Texans experiencing energy blackouts in the midst of the coldest weather they had seen in decades. The answer: thinking green. Nearly half of Texas’ windmills that provide a significant percentage of the state’s electrical power froze up. Green energy didn’t cause the freeze of course, that was caused by man-made Global Warming (sarcasm). But this green energy failure is causing people to suffer the consequences of the freeze. The Houston Chronicle explains: Natural gas shortages and frozen wind turbines were already curtailing power output when the Arctic blast began knocking generators offline early Monday morning. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, which is responsible for scheduling power and ensuring the reliability of the electrical network, declared a statewide power generation shortfall emergency and asked electricity delivery companies to reduce load through controlled outages. More than 4 million customers were without power in Texas, including some 1.2 million in the Houston area, the worst power …
Remember that Paris Accord that the environmental extremists are demanding that the west follow in order to save the planet from Climate Change. Well, surprise, surprise, apparently China got a free ride.
So, how much is a slightly used solar farm worth these days? Well first we need to find out how much it actually cost?
The Democrat controlled state of California has totally embraced unreliable green energy such as windmills and solar panels that only work when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining. And in the process California scrapped reliable gas and nuclear energy.
California is the home of green energy, windmills and solar power. In the midst of a heat wave that is expected to last until Wednesday, the state is telling people and businesses to brace for rolling power black outs.
