Britain's Energy Plan
Recent news on energy

The picture below shows the scheme to which Mr. Miliband, Labour Party leader, committed us when he signed the Climate Change Act.



If we continue with it, the 2000-per-year energy bill will soon be with us.


One of the duties of government is to provide affordable power, and a secure supply, 24/7.


Scientists and engineers know that the scheme above will provide neither.



    Miliband has said that energy companies are profiteering.

    Here are British Gas's costs, reported by a person who objected to paying the Green Levy on his gas bill:

    38% Electricity bought from wholesale market:
    26% Delivery to homes:
    19% Government Green Levy:
    12% Operating costs:
    5% Profits:

    So - 5% is profiteering.

    Quadruple it - that's roughly what the government is taking.

    Costs obviously passed on to the customer; BG has no choice.
