    Aussie Media Gets Facts Way Wrong On Wind

    Murdoch media gets it hopelessly wrong on wind energy. Again.

    Giles Parkinson, July 20, 2016 (ReNew Economy)

    “…[The latest] Murdoch media attack on the Australia wind industry…suggests that South Australia’s wind turbines were producing significant amounts of ‘negative power’ from the grid at the height of the recent electricity ‘crisis’…but the numbers it quotes are so ridiculously wrong it is almost laughable…[The Murdoch media apparently does not know] the difference between capacity and output…The state’s wind turbines cannot produce 5,780MW because they only have a combined capacity of 1,600MW. There’s not even 5,780MW of wind capacity in the whole country…[There is ‘negative output’ when turbines are not generating but, like a coal or gas plant, the facility needs power from the grid for lights, computers, etc. It was, according to government statistics, not 50MW but no more than 1.8MW]…To adapt an old expression, there are lies, damned lies, and the Murdoch media, particularly when it comes to writing about renewable energy (and climate change for that matter)…” click here for more
