Caveat Emptor: “The Biggest Waste of Money I Have Ever Spent in My Entire Life…"

The world should make every effort practical to search for cleaner, more renewable sources of energy. Most don’t argue that point. But where is the line drawn between efficiently practical and inefficiently costly?

Should we shift to some form of energy with a total disregard for the financial hardship it will create? Beyond the dollars-and-cents calculations, there are also environmental issues resulting from “clean energy initiatives” that are being ignored.

Climate change zealots, for example, condemn the fossil fuel industry as planet-polluting parasites. However, has anyone ever researched the amount of environmental destructiveness required to mine the materials needed to produce electric car batteries?

We don’t hear about these stories because they don’t fit with the radical narrative to shift our energy needs, regardless of the consequences. But the financial efficiency and actual productivity data for a renewable energy source should never be misleading.

That doesn’t seem to be the case with the all-hailed source of free energy: solar power. Solar power has long been proclaimed to be the save-all renewable source of energy. It’s not, but the radical climate fanatics will tell us that it is. They’re not telling the whole story.

First, storing solar energy is still challenging. What happens when the power grid is compromised because we experience a series of cloudy days? The climate freaks will sidestep that question with adept skill.

But there is some concrete data they cannot sidestep. That’s the true financial practicality and efficiency of solar power. The numbers just do not add up. Solar energy companies are overstating the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of solar power to sell consumers on the idea.

A Frederickton, Missouri resident said a solar energy firm misled him with empty promises. He was not happy. Curtis Jarvis spoke with News4 Missouri. Jarvis said the solar firm told him “Own your own power. That’s what they said. I own very little power.”

Pink Energy sold Jarvis his solar system. They promised that the solar panels Jarvis was purchasing would provide sufficient energy for his home. The company boasted that he would have an endless supply of energy, more than his home would ever need.

They lied. Jarvis is paying monthly installments on $46,000. He was told that his 25-year investment would result in a 61 percent reduction in his energy consumption from outside sources. However, that figure has turned out to be closer to 10 percent.

That’s a far shade less efficient than Pink Energy proclaimed. But just like the liberal crazies are exaggerating the climate crisis, the renewable energy companies are hoodwinking the consumers with overblown projections.

Pink Energy has decided to shut down operations after more than 1,000 consumer complaints. It’s unlikely that they’ll have to repay a penny for their scheme. This entire climate crisis is a scheme. Curtis Jarvis said it’s “the biggest waste of money I’ve ever spent!”

A few are going to “get rich quick,” while millions are going to get bamboozled. These crooks need to be held accountable. Pink Energy issued a rich statement full of fabricated regret for what company officials referred to as that “now forced us to make the decision to close our doors completely and immediately.”

“The decision we have to now make does not come lightly and has taken a tremendous toll on all of us, and it is with our deepest regrets that we are notifying all Pink Energy employees that your employment is terminated immediately effective today.” These scams are only going to get worse.
