Who Needs Electricity Anyway?
By Paul Homewood
Our heavily subsidised wind farms have really been making their contribution to powering Britain’s homes and factories today.
In the last 24 hours, they produced the princely amount of 2959 MWh, just 0.3% of total generation.
This is equivalent to just 4 minutes worth of electricity in a 24 hour day.
Based on my household usage of about 5000 KWh pa, that equals 0.04 KWh today. I reckon that’s enough to boil half a kettle.
Fortunately, coal, gas and nuclear contributed 90%, and the kindly French and Dutch supplied us with another 7%.
Meanwhile, our ludicrous Energy Secretary accuses anyone who points these facts out of wanting to take the country back to the stone age. I think we’d find more sanity down the rabbit hole.
