It of course depends how you calculate the cost. If you don't factor in the long term costs of climate change then the sort of huge of coal stations they are building in China will appear to be cheaper every time.Keith Oates said:I read somewhere that all of these 'green power systems' are more expensive than the power supplied by existing power stations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hmm. You might like to consider changing away from NPower, irrespective of where their 'green' electricity is claimed to come from...Dannyg said:...
They are not necessarily going to be more expensive - indeed a few years ago when we move to Juice, which is run by Npower, we managed to reduce our costs.
Yeah I know about that already In fact the episode over the lakes prompted me to look at whether Npower's Juice was really all that "green".mjones said:

last year we had a new gas boiler
I'm not aware of any 100% hydro schemes- are there? In any case, not all hydro is available all year; it is affected by rainfall.If it's 100% hydro-electric then there would be no out-time.
Southern claim to do a 100% green option.
