The cost of wind farms.
Ofgen, the energy regulator (UK) will next month publish a report showing that there is a hidden levy whereby customers are paying more than £1bn. per year to finance these wind farms.
It means that renewable energy added an estimated £13.50 to the average household bill for last year. The Ofgen report will further show that over the past three years these subsidies have added a total of £32.50 to household bills.
According to Ofgen calculations the cost to consumers of the scheme between 2002 and 2027 will amount of £32bn.
There are currently 270 wind farms with 2,775 turbines in operation, with plans for a further 10,000 turbines on and around Britain's shores.
Are they worth it both in terms of expense and eyesores to the consumer? Surely there is another way to provide power.
