Obama: “The price of energy will necessarily skyrocket” – Now in UK too!

Back before he took office, Obama set out his stall for his pogrom against affordable energy. The mail has breaking new of a report the government has tried to suppress:

Family electricity bills are set to soar by almost £350 within 15 years – to pay for the Government subsidies for green energy.

Official figures — initially withheld by ministers — reveal the price of electricity will rocket by 60 per cent as wind farms and other green projects take over traditional coal-burning power stations.

The cost of electricity will jump from £131 per megawatt hour to some £206 by 2030, the Government estimates. It means that the average household bill will rise from £589.50 to £927.

Homes which only use electricity could see their bills rise by as much as £440 a year.

Businesses will also be hit very hard, according to the new figures. On average such medium-sized firms will see their electricity bills rise by more than £500,000 a year, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

The figures were published last week by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, following a Freedom of Information request by campaigners.

The information was initially prepared for an official government report – but the tables showing the cost of green policies on future electricity prices were kept secret because they were ‘thought to be confusing’.

In a bid to cut Britain’s greenhouse gas emissions, the Government has introduced a swathe of green subsidies.

Dr John Constable, of the Renewable Energy Foundation, slammed the Government for hiding the impact of green energy policies. He said:

‘The striking scale and increasing trend of the climate policy energy price impacts are bad enough in themselves, but DECC’s attempt to conceal these vitally important figures is breathtaking.’

    Interesting that in the full article, a government spokesman says the confusion arises between conflating “costs” and “bills”. In other words, while the costs will rise, the government is saying that fiddling with costs offloaded onto other sectors of the economy, the “bills” a person receives not just will be lower, but are ALREADY lower.

    The explanation reveals a current, behind-the-scenes cost transfer of renewable energy to other parts of your daily life. Perhaps import duties ….

    Worth looking into how “costs” and “bills’ don’t show the same thing at present, don’t you think?

    Perfect timing! just as we enter the colder part of this solar minimum. The Stygian Council is evidently alive and kicking.
