I like some of the headlines coming out of the Low Carbon Transition plan. The two that catch my eye especially are:
- Financial incentives for home generation.
- Paying for the creation of woodland.
I’d love to be able to commission a wind turbine (so long as it was quiet) or get some photo-voltaics up and running and at least generate a portion of my own electricity – selling an excess back to the grid would be the cherry on the cake.
Getting paid for transforming a few acres into woodland is something I’d love to do and that would make a lot of sense for the barn. It may also be the solution to my problematic overgrown fields – can’t even give the grass away at the moment!
I hope the headlines match up to reality some time soon.
One to watch…
