Add inflation on top of the £300++.

The consumer is going to choke on inflation and cough up the mortgage market.

Household bills to rise to fund energy revolution

Householders face paying hundreds of pounds more in their energy bills under a wide-ranging Coalition plan to “keep the lights on”.

Chris Huhne, the Energy Secretary, is set to give the go ahead to the construction of eight new nuclear power stations.

Chris Huhne, the Energy Secretary, will set out an ambitious blueprint on Monday to transform Britain’s power system over the next 40 years.

He is set to give the go ahead to a new generation of eight nuclear power stations, alongside an expansion of renewable energy and the creation of up to 44,000 wind turbines.

The review is also expected to scrap plans for a 10 mile barrage across the Severn Estuary as part of the world’s biggest tidal energy project.

The scheme – costing up to £30bn – will be axed to avoid adding to the national debt.

But there are fears that other proposals in the blueprint could lead to a rapid rise in the cost of household bills.

It is believed energy bills are likely to increase by at least £300 a year per household to fund financial support for the wind industry and other renewable projects.

Shouldn't they be encouraging people to switch the lights off. Madcap plans from politicians are without limit.

They should be encouraging a power supply that can respond to demand. Windmills do the opposite. Peak electricity demand comes at times of very hot weather or very cold weather, conditions that come about with an absence of wind.

The investment in windmills has been a complete waste, but it has sure lined the pockets of politicians' friends in the industry who got the nod and the wink.

What they need is hydro-electric.

Throw all the Lairds out of scotland and into the sea and turn the highlands into enough hydro-electric to power half of europe.
