It’s re-run time on TV so if you are looking for some amusement this evening—sorry, it’s only 10 minutes but that might be all you can take—try listening to Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli on CBC Radio’s Windsor Morning show today.

The Minister covers the topic of Hydro One (we are “re-purposing the assets”), the need for reliability in the electricity system (he inherited a system of brownouts and blackouts), and the Green Energy Act which somehow miraculously protects us from power outages due to thunderstorms.

You won’t believe your ears.

Listen to the podcast here.

Don't worry about power outages now: the Liberals' Green Energy Act is here! (it miraculously transmits power even though lines are down...)

Blow’em all up.

“A renewable energy company in the Bavarian Allgäu has been making space for new wind turbines as quickly as possible – by blowing up the old ones.
The video is just under 5 minutes long and shows the towers being blown up before collapsing in Bavarian fields.
Explosives expert Olaf Hoyer told Tagesspiegel that the controlled explosion went well.
Michael Lucke of the turbine operator Allgäuer Überlandwerk said that the turbines were “a total write-off” because no more spare parts were available for the eleven-year-old machines.”

My power is back on after about 24 hrs due to the storms that rolled through Ontario. Wood power poles taken out.

Developers don’t care about Ontario weather conditions due to its geography.

Install the IWTs and sell them leaving new investors stuck with the situation.

We think the point is, if the wires are down due to storm damage, it doesn’t matter what form of power generation is being used, there will be no power. The Green Energy Act has nothing to do with it. Can’t believe our Energy Minister could say something like that.
