The Cost Of Green Energy Topples The Government In Bulgaria

The citizens of Europe’s poorest country, Bulgaria, take to the streets to protest the cost of Green Energy and Poverty

There is a lesson to learned from events last month in Europe’s poorest country, Bulgaria, well actually there are 2 lessons to be learned, both unfortunately need to be learned by politicians in the rest of Europe, or the world when it comes to it.

The first lesson is that people will not put up with ever increasing electricity bills in the name of saving the planet while a few fat cats and crony capitalists cream off huge profits from Green subsidies on ordinary people’s and businesses energy bills, the second lesson is that Green intermittent renewable energy wreaks havoc on electrical grids, ultimately leading to brown outs and black outs as the grid cannot cope with the sudden Green energy spikes.

History shows that even a short period of rolling black outs will bring down a Government, even in a country like Britain, when in 1974 then Prime Minister Edward Heath took on the miners, with the resulting Three Day Week of rolling power cuts. Heath called an election in February 1974 when the Three Day Week was at its height, and effectively lost the election as he could not form a working majority for Government.

On February 20th this year protests at the cost of Green energy and the resulting increased poverty toppled the government of Boyko Borissov:

Protests against high electricity bills and poverty toppled the government of Boyko Borissov on Feb. 20. Now 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.

That is a massive reduction in Green energy generation, attempts by the Bulgarian state energy regulator to curb Green energy costs by substantially increasing grid access fees has been ruled against by the courts who found in favor of 3 solar energy companies on March 15th, with more court cases by Green renewable energy suppliers to follow there will be no easy escape from Green induced poverty for the people of Bulgaria.

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

Green energy renewable subsidies cause energy poverty for families and are a killer for jobs, the future for Bulgaria is somewhat less than bleak, unless the feeding frenzy of the Green vultures can be curbed, you can tell just how bad the situation has become with the Green Dream when EU energy chief Günther Oettinger says there must be no more new Green taxes on energy and emissions in the EU.

    XX in Europe’s poorest country, XX

    Oh FFS!!!! Since when did you work for the BBC, where it is a sacking offence NOT to say “The worlds poorest country” even when refering to Switzerland??

    Makes you sound like a BBC drone imbicile. STOP it!

    • Yeah, I take your point but its does sound better than Bulgaria has the lowest per capita income in the EU, and more importantly the warmists have hijacked climate science, should they also be allowed to hijack emotive phrases as well?
      Sticky question all in all :D

  4. Hello Tory,
    Very interesting, i read a lot about this kind of fuel,but i need to learn from people who try it, is it effeciant and very much cheaper than the oil fuel, i heard bout the wood pellet burners,that can be fitted into an exsisting central heating system, to replace the fossil oil burner,is it effeciant ? i heard that it is very expensive,as well for the pellet stoves, can anybody with practical experience help me in making up my mind,i love to use anything good to the enviorment,but i do not want to regrit it,thanks
    Great Job!
