Please come and show the Irish how it's done!
We're all too busy arguing about who's paying for water to tap that best in europe resource in our back yard.

"Ohh but we'd need a big cable to France and a better National Grid!" norfolk
"Yes so why don't you fix it then so we can turn on the clean cash pumping machines?"

Holy Cow, this suggests we are going to treble the offshore wind in the next 6 years from around 8GW to 24GW. And that's on top of whatever extra solar PV gets added.

Me thinks that National Grid is going to have to pull its finger out to deal with this extra generation or else its  sh*tfan

12kW+ of PV installed and 65+ MWh's generated.
Useable home battery storage of 50+ kWh's.
