Enjoyed the theme, and the clues fit the phrases. There were a couple of tricky bits, but you could puzzle them out.

I thought this was great! Clever clues, a bit of a challenge but not too hard, lots of fun! Thanks!

Very clever, Dave! This was one of those that made my brain think sideways, which I really enjoy. Good, helpful clues and lots of fun deciphering the phrases, thanks!

Good puzzle, I should've plugged my brain in.

Really enjoyed this, but got suckered in. The first one made me understand the idea, the next two got with no letter, then....tanked the last one. Thanks! Great fun

Like bbear I got one without using any letters. The others, well... Very challenging! Thanks bigdavy.

Good puzzle with a few tricks. I did well again, but got careless with letters.

This clearly wasn't my day...

That, plus one of them cost me 23 letters and about 1,200 points..

The next time I try this without caffeine, someone kick my rear end before the WP does!

The first one mislead me into an incorrect concept, which killed me on the second one. The rest were just hard, but fair. Those who got this in fewer than 20 moves are a lot cleverer than I am!

Hi everybody, I'm glad you liked this WP.

I used a lot of different wordplay (not just rhymes) and I'm sorry if that tripped anyone up -- this definitely made it more challenging!

FYI, here are all the phrases (with the clues in parentheses):

BIGDAVY's Bad Power
profane propane ("Vulgar gas?")
damn hydroelectric ("Cursed water power?")
unnatural gas ("Deviant vapor?")
tortured solar ("Anguished rays?")
ill wind ("Sickly breeze?")
cruel fuel ("Tough tinder?")
unclear nuclear ("Hazy fission?")
sin diesel ("Wicked truck fuel?")
scuttled coal ("Abandoned anthracite?")
staticky electricity ("Noisy current?")

I got the idea from a sign in front of a hardware store that said "PROPANE PROPANE"... which made me think of "profane propane" and then "cruel fuel". Then I ran out of rhymes, so I came up with the other phrases. And my editor Sploofernatural suggested "unclear nuclear" which I couldn't resist adding.
