Still, I must not be too harsh on Jillian. She does at last seem to have grasped that the subsidies shelled out for renewables are making conventional plants, both thermal and nuclear, uncompetitive. Not least because they are only able to operate at reduced hours.It is a strange world when the National Grid’s boss finds this situation “exciting”!Meanwhile you can always rely on the marxists at the WWF for a good laugh. Their solution to the problems caused by subsidies for reneweables? Let’s have some more!
