Renewables Triumph: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Germans Aim for World Record Power Price

Remember all that guff about ‘cheap’ wind and solar power? No? That’s probably because every country that throws buckets of subsidies at the unreliables ends up suffering off-the-charts power prices.

The wind and sun are free, we’re told. But, somehow, the promises of cheap power at the end of the renewable energy transition rainbow keep failing to materialize.

Germany set the pace when it comes to plastering the countryside with solar panels and spearing these things far and wide (more than 30,000 of them, so far).

So, if there was ever an opportunity to prove the point about how cheap wind and solar can be, Germany provided it.

As Pierre Gosselin points out below, however, there’s little joy and a whole lot of suffering in store for wind and solar ‘powered’ Germans.

German Electricity Prices Spiraling Out Of Control…Tripling Since 2000… Blackouts, Unrest Loom

German electricity prices surge out of control, social instability threatens …. German Chancellor assures police won’t open fire on demonstrators. Sun and wind don’t send any electric bills, the green energy swindlers used to tell us.

Changing over to sun and wind energy would cost only one euro a month more, Germany’s former Environment Minister Jürgen Trittin once promised. All we had to do was accept their master plan.

Today the swindle is uncovering, and it may be too late to avert the massive damage that’s coming our way.

At Facebook, Helmut Bauer posted the most recent chart depicting Germany’s electricity rates for end-consumers. It’s a blood bath:

What a mess; they’ve reached 41 cents a kilowatt-hour and it’s about to get much worse – especially for the people who can least afford it. Expect social unrest to boil over the months ahead as prices and shortages inflict pain on the poor. We’re in uncharted territory.

Hey, not to worry: German Chancellor Olaf Scholz promised that police will not open fire on demonstrators.

But let’s not give up hope.

Disgruntled now? Wait until they get their power bills!!
