Well yes, obviously

Sent last week to Terry Stewart, president of the Dorset branch of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE), Mr Letwin’s email states: “I anticipate that subsidies for both solar photovoltaic and onshore wind will come down to zero over the next few years and should have disappeared by 2020, since both of these forms of energy are gradually becoming economic without the need for subsidies.”

Although given that the becoming economic is not being driven by the UK subsidies they should be cut today, not in a few years.

What will interest is, well, who will argue against this?

  1. I think it too much to hope that politicians will admit that they’ve been getting it wrong for fifteen years. I think it even less likely that they will hang powerful interests out to dry- too much chance of retaliation.
    Hence the news, if true, that they intend a climb down over eight years is probably the best we can hope for.
