If not in Hawkes Bay, then where will Solar power work?

Socialist Ratbag: Fenton Wilson

Even in NZ, people are wising up to the fact that solar power is not economically viable without subsidies.

“Hawke’s Bay Regional Council has decided against installing solar panels on its Napier building because the power bill savings don’t justify the costs of using the sun’s rays for heating.”

So if it doesn’t work in the Hawke’s Bay which has the 4th most sunshine hours in New Zealand, then where will it work?

Even though they know it won’t work they still think its a good idea, but only if someone else will pay for it… 

“The council’s climate change report said staff were still exploring the option of applying for a grant to subsidise the cost of the system.”

More proof that Fenton Wilson runs a dodgy socialist council intent on subsidies or everything including their power.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
