Renewable price cushion? (A C Wiseman)
As you no doubt will have seen on the news, the price of electricity is to go up again. Why does the council not make use of all this wind power we hear about all the time and put up a few Burradale-sized windmills and clip it into the local grid and help to cushion the price hikes for island people before that capacity is lost to the money makers?
Why is the energy minister (interview, 17th October) saying, at the site of pylon renewal down in the centre of Scotland, that they are to be bigger with more carrying capacity for all this renewable energy from the north of Scotland and the Northern Isles. Does he know something we don’t?
