The phrase “renewables are cheaper” is thrown around like confetti by climate alarmists.
Yet scratch the surface and it turns out this claim is based on false assumptions.
The GenCost report excludes the cost of recycling, it underestimates the life of a coal powered power station and overestimates the life and capacity of renewables to name a few.
There is no clarity on the assumptions used to estimate the cost of transmission lines or how many batteries will be needed to back up the grid.
Whenever questions are asked as to how many kilometres of transmission lines are needed, no expert can give a straight answer.
Renewables are not cheaper, they are very expensive and are sending power prices soaring.
