"Free" energy


Recommended Posts

?13.50 levy per household last year.

Windfarms get 40% of that, so ?5.40.

So we invested 10p a week plus a 20p Christmas bonus.

That includes all the building and set up costs.


Well it's not free, admittedly, but 10p per household per week doesn't seem worth squawking about. It's charged on consumption, so you can reduce or dodge it by not using your share of electricity, and the biggest users pay the most. Seems fair enough to me. The other option is to centrally fund it all and put the burden on the taxpayer again. This way, benefit scroungers and work dodgers are paying their share too!
