The green energy production numbers we hear from the media are only true in the sense that they are the Production Tax Credit numbers, taxpayers in America are getting soaked for every year. They are grossly exaggerated and have been as rigged as the 2020 election for decades. Real world numbers are another thing.
But this reported green energy output is part of a system that fits Joe Biden perfectly. The more the green peddlers lie about their production, the more PTC money they get to steal from taxpayers.
For this off the grid town in Antarctica , the building of 3 medium sized 333 kW wind turbines on Ross Island was far from a big success. It was primarily a publicity stunt. With a population that seasonally fluctuates from about 200-1000, they are supposedly getting 11 percent of their electricity from a total of 1 MW of installed wind energy capacity.
“The wind farm will produce] enough energy for 20 to 25 U.S. homes for a year,” said Ralph Giardino, the USAP project manager coordinating U.S. support for the wind farm.
"If the Crater Hill wind farm is successful, a second phase could include up to 10 more turbines."
If these statements are true and at this rate of installed capacity per capita, America would have to install several million 1 MW wind turbines just to achieve 11% of its electrical energy. Today America has the equivalent of 120,000 1 MW turbines.
This project went on line in 2009 and was such a failure, that now 12 years later, no more turbines have been added to this isolated town that still survives on diesel generators.
