Freezing The British and Bolton Poor & Enriching The Muliti National Rich

Freezing The Poor & Enriching The Rich

After the coldest December on record killed thousands of pensioners who couldn´t afford to heat their homes, the EU is forcing energy targets´ on Britain that will simply make a few very rich people even richer.Householders, businesses and public buildings are, from this week, to be offered cash incentives to install environmentally friendly technology under an initiative known as the Renewable Heat Incentive, and in return they will receive a grant based on the amount of heat which is produced from the alternative source.

However, the increasing number of government subsidies and incentives for renewable energies will surely create more problems than they solve. This new scheme joins the ranks of many other rewards and incentives, such as the feed-in tariffs which are to be paid to people, communities or businesses who generate electricity from solar panels, wind turbines or other renewable sources.

Renewable Energy Targets:

Britain’s “renewable energy target”, which has been set by the European Union, demands that 30 percent of our electricity be generated from renewable sources within ten years.

OFGEM, the energy supply industry regulator, has announced that more than £40 billion alone will have to be spent by 2020 just to connect these “renewable energy sources” to the National Grid.

Enriching The Rich 

This works out to a cool £4 billion per year, dwarfing the “Green Investment Bank” handout, which itself is just another Green Gimmick. According to a recent report in the Financial Times, the “Bank” will be granted a £1 billion budget (with another £1 billion then coming from asset sales) to distribute. This £2 billion of new investment is meant to help plug the green investment gap in the UK!

Meanwhile, 30% of our coal and nuclear generation capacity is going to be taken out of service over the next few years in order to meet EU ´carbon emission´ targets set as a result of global warming hysteria.

Wind Farms:

Farmers in Cumbria have recently received a booklet detailing the income available to those who can afford Wind Turbines on their land. For an original outlay of £500,000 for a 250 kw turbine with average wind speed of 7 m/s, the annual income will be £150,000 fixed for 20 years, meaning a lifetime income (wind turbines only “live” for a total of 25 years) of £3 million.

However, one of Scotland's leading conservation bodies has challenged head-on the common assertion that wind farms run at an average of 30 percent capacity over a year. A study carried out for the John Muir Trust into the energy generated by dozens of wind farms, the majority of which are in Scotland, between November 2009 and December 2010, found that, over 395 days, the wind farms could have produced 17,586,000 mw hours of energy running at full capacity. In reality, 3,881,900 mw hours were generated, equivalent to 22.07 percent.

Meanwhile, a separate report has revealed that 70 percent of wind farms built in England only operate at 25 percent capacity because they have apparently been placed in areas where there is not enough wind.

According to the report, the worst performing wind farm is in Blyth Harbour in Northumberland, where windmills operate at 4.9 percent of capacity.

In the recent cold December, all the wind farms already built in Britain are reported to have been producing on average only enough electricity to boil 3,000 kettles.
