Pffft. You sissy. It was 110° at 8:30 this morning at my house. (Okay, okay...it did cool down into the 70s a few minutes later.)

How is your electric bill this month? And what is the wind speed around the wind turbines in west Texas? When you need the power, they are not producing it. So you and I are paying double for two power producing facilities, one wind and one conventional. That is included in the price you are charged per kwh. And General Electric, who builds wind turbines and got the tax credits, did not pay any income tax last year. It is real disgusting to me that Obama now wants to raise taxes on the rest of us.

“For summer peak capacity ERCOT counts 8.7 percent of wind nameplate capacity in accordance with ERCOT’s stakeholder-adopted methodology, based on a study of the effective load serving capability of wind” ERCOT is the agency that oversees power transmission and distribution in the State of Texas. They are the agency that orders rolling blackouts if necessary.

Wind power is fraud. Who would buy a power plant that would generate only 8.7 percent of the capacity that it is advertised to the public to produce? Why is this information buried?

Ask Rick Perry. He said he would support the turbines and the infrastructure to get the electricity to the end users, then fought the power lines after the turbines were built.

Connect the turbines, and they'll put every other form of electricity to shame. Texas is the Saudi Arabia of wind power.

Rage, today, July 17, the wind is not blowing enough at Roscoe, Texas to produce any electrical power on this hot day. Those turbine ratings are based on a wind speed of 27 mph. The wind might have got up to 13 mph at Roscoe today for brief periods. At wind speeds of half the ideal rate the power produced is the CUBE ROOT of the advertised output. So from the total installed Texas capacity of 10,000 megawatts we were getting less than 22 megawatts (only if the wind got up to 13 mph). This will continue throughout the summer. And they give tax credits for that crap? I call that fraud. So Rage, please be green and shut off your air conditioner. You are causing the burning of too much coal.
