Good article about it in the Guardian, which no doubt will have the "commenters" going ape.

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/sep/11/uk-green-energy-expensive-not-any-more-from-now-on-its-cheap?CMP=share_btn_tw

One thing that stood out for me was this line "only 176m-a-year of the 240m subsidy pot set aside by officials will be needed."

Presumably Govt had budgeted for that 65million/year to be spent - if it's not going towards this CfD round, where's it going instead?

I'll bet that Mart is being merciless to his troll pack this morning.

I'm taking the high moral ground, plus there are too many of them hunting me now, for every fact post I make 3 or 4 of them will post insults about me, the spin now has moved to 'intermittency costs' I suspect if renewables were free they'd still spin a negative. The Guardian's super troll did repeat this post yesterday, which he's posted about 30+ times this summer:-

T̲h̲i̲s̲ i̲s̲ t̲h̲e̲ ̲G̲o̲v̲'̲t pr̲e̲d̲i̲c̲t̲i̲o̲n̲ f̲o̲r̲ 2̲0̲3̲0̲.̲ ̲
Onshore wind to be in the range 45-72/MWh
Offshore wind will be in the range 85-109/MWh
Nuclear, at 69-99/MWh.
For solar they predict 59-73/MW

So 85-109 in 2030, or 57.50 in 2023 ...... hmm!   angel

Actually the last section on "facts don't matter on the Internet" about confirmation bias. I'm going to try to learn more about this for when I'm next in a debate.

Time for sport Mart! fingers crossed!

Or the Grauniad

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/sep/11/huge-boost-renewable-power-offshore-windfarm-costs-fall-record-low

Ministers said the multimillion-pound pot of subsidies would generate clean power for 3.6m homes. Two windfarms the Hornsea 2 project off the Yorkshire coast and the Moray offshore windfarm in Scotland secured a guaranteed price for their power of 57.50 per megawatt hour (MWh) from the government. This is far below the 92.50 awarded to Hinkley last year.
