Wind, Solar, FAIL in Bulgaria. Not an isolated case.

Exactly the same fundmental problems have occurred everywhere.

The huge cost eventually drives power bills to unacceptable levels and the power surges eventually disrupt the grid so much that the solar and wind supply needs to be restricted.

We have all been forced to pay for systems that do not work, have not worked and cannot be made to work. Solar and wind have fundamental flaws which require the discovery of new science, not simply the development of any existing, or new technology. The energy being collected is to weak and to intermittent to be viable.

BLOOMBERG
Bulgaria to Suspend Up to 40% of Wind, Solar Power Capacity

“Bulgaria may suspend as much as 40 percent of wind and solar power capacity as part of its effort to stem oversupply and stabilize electricity generation

About 40 percent of wind and solar power producers aren’t providing real-time information to the country’s central electricity dispatcher, jeopardizing the safety of Bulgaria’s transmission network, Energy Minister Asen Vasilev said in a document posted on the ministry’s website. They will be temporarily disconnected, he said.

Bulgaria’s grid is suffering from power overloads caused by a rapid increase in wind and solar capacity coupled with decreasing domestic consumption in the face of a weak economy. The government wants to relax the restrictions on electricity trading with neighboring Turkey, according to the document.

Protests against high electricity bills and poverty toppled the government of Boyko Borissov on Feb. 20. President Rosen Plevneliev appointed an interim government led by Prime Minister Marin Raikov on March 12 to organize and hold early elections on May 12.”
