Energy Bill to increase prices to fund cleaner fuel

23 November 2012 Last updated at 12:11



The government has published details of its long-awaited Energy Bill, designed to keep lights on and emissions down.

It will allow energy companies to charge households an extra £7.6bn until 2020, to go towards low-carbon electricity infrastructure.

A decision about setting carbon emission targets for 2030 has been delayed until 2016, after the election.

Labour said this was a "humiliating failure" for the Lib Dems, who want gas banished from the electricity system.



The advisory committee on climate change estimates the £7.6bn the plan allows for will add about £110 to the average household energy bill by 2020.

Turn the heating way down in all government ministers' offices. Turn it off in the House of Lords (a lot of them are elderly and would benefit from knowing what it's like to be old with no heat). Erect wind turbines in the gardens and surrounding areas of the political elite (Chipping Norton first) and all the other well-heeled nimby's. Insist the rich have hideously ugly solar panels erected on their rooftops. Make every politician and their entourage drive either electric cars or 1200cc engines. Stop allowing anyone involved in politics to have interests in sustainable energy companies.

There'd be a lot of carbon emission if that happened - from the mouths of the elite.

Oh dear, I was having a daydream there.

And ensure that they are disconnected from the National Grid, so that all their electricity needs are "environmentally friendly ! ! !

Donald Trump's not happy with the windfarm farce plan.

here's another

I wonder how many MP's would be so supportive of the windfarm plan were it in their garden. I think they'd be trumpetting quite a different tune. (forgive the pun - couldn't help it).
