  • More fun with alternative energy subsidies

    The blue and brown bars are what you would pay without green intervention. The rest is thanks to the greens.


    Electricity network costs have increased by around 20% in real terms since 2008.


    The cost of transporting electricity to consumers has increased due to ... new generation capacity being connected ...

    As I've noted repeatedly - the high cost of present and near-future PV, as well as wind, forces up prices overall not just through the direct electricity cost of feed-in tariffs plus installation subsidies, but also through the effects on the transmission network.

    The graph above - which is from the UK Climate Change ministry, not some 'evil' oil company - shows that the effects of CO2-climate change alarmism on energy prices are quite real.
