According to reports, Centrica is thinking that wind is the way forward and is thinking of getting into the wind farm business itself. And Greenbang thought normal farmers had it tough. Imagine having to milk a turbine.
Centrica’s CEO Sam Laidlaw said at the company’s annual results day that wind could feature in the power company’s plans. However, Laidlaw said the EU should think about getting involved. With its wallet.
Forbes quotes the man himself as saying:
“To reach the new EU targets it is vital that there is a supportive market and a planning framework in place that incentivises energy companies to build these offshore wind farms.”
According to Forbes, Laidlaw also revealed it’s got plans to build 1.5 GW of wind capacity in the future, with a price tag of £3 billion.
