Couple of interesting comments that went completely unremarked…and considering the huge political fuss about energy companies raising prices you might have thought they were somewhat noteworthy.
Ed Davey, energy minister, on Today (08:16) stated that:
‘Rising gas prices have been the cause of rising energy bills at the moment.’
Cameron when talking about the nuclear power station deal and pricing said that it was cheaper than all other non-carbon sources……ie wind farms and solar. (No link)
So….rising bills are in fact caused by wholesale prices and not greedy energy firms…according to the energy minister (and Ofgem confirmed prices have risen 8%)
…and for all the fuss over the price of the nuclear power in 2023 it is still cheaper than wind or solar.
As I said….might just have been two very relevant statements…but the BBC seems to have completely missed them.
