Renewables and Bills: The Facts

The recent wave of announcements of cuts to renewable energy support have been justified on the basis of cutting costs. The Office of Budget Responsibility calculated the cost of supporting low carbon power by 2020/21 has risen from a budget of £7.6 billion to £9.1 billion and Policy Exchange and Green Alliance have joined the debate.

.

So what are the facts about our spend on renewables, impact on energy bills and how this compares with other sources of energy?

.

NB Nuclear waste is £79 per household, per year.

A message from the 10:10 campaigners...

.

Imagine if we could all buy clean power direct from a local energy co-op, for a price that matched our budget.
.
In some countries this is totally normal. In Britain, it's banned. Let's fix that!
.
We're asking the next climate minister to bring in a right to supply for community energy groups.
