£1.2 million to not produce wind power

The Daily Telegraph Reports that a Norwegian wind company was paid £1.2 million to not produce electricity during a period of high winds.  This was a hair shy of 10 times the artificially above market rate wind farms receive to make power.  British ratepayers will fit the bill.

We’re not making this up.

This is part of an astonishing £523 million in subsidy payments British ratepayers sent to foreign wind corporations.

Foreign oil was not enough?  Foreign wind?

Telegraph View: The Government’s policy on renewable energy is based on dogma not evidence.
