Thousands of Solar PV Panels in Hampshire and Sussex

Coming to a field near you? These fields of solar PV panels from Sussex to Hampshire(some 18,000), has displaced agriculture and food production to guarantee the farmers a mega payday for twenty five years and all paid by you and I. Feed in Tarriffs guarantee subsidies even if you use all the power yourself. This is a feature of many southern european countries in particular Italy and Spain, although Spain has now withdrawn the subsidies. Now these solar arrays are moving north but this country has limited sunshine and limited free space. On the top of a car factory perhaps but on rural agricultural land is not my idea of joined up thinking. On top of this few if any panels are built in the UK, most imported from China. Now I don’t know where these came from but it is an even bet that they were imported. The one acceptable(?) option if you forget the subsidies is the one on the factory. Just hope that the roof was engineered to stand the weight plus a load of snow!!

The jury is out on this one as they are better than Turbines, but only just.

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
