Today in Parliament David Davis MP proposed a bill to force wind farm operators, to ensure that have sufficient capital to cover potential liabilities. Legislation aimed at stopping them claiming that they are broke and getting away with it.
David Davis MP used the 10 minute rule to introduce a Private Members Bill, to propose legislation to prevent wind farm firms from avoiding their responsibilities. Mr Davis explained that these wind farm operators, that can be valued in the billions, use shell organisations to build and operate these sites, while ensuing that these shells have greater liabilities than assets, effectively broke. This can prevent, for instance, a local resident from winning damages for health problems from infrasound or flicker. This legislation may also require a Bond to cover the costs of decommissioning.
Private members bills do not always become legislation, they may be used to encourage the government to amend existing legislation. It is remarkable however, that these details are not already included.
