Move to green energy hitting fuel poverty suffers

Those at the very bottom of the UK income spectrum are being hit disproportionately hard when it comes to investment in green technology and green energy. This is the conclusion of a report produced by the government's Fuel Policy Advisory Group which will force the UK government to think again about the green energy policies which are currently in place. But why should green energy cost more?

The truth is that the UK does not at this moment in time have an adequate framework to produce green technology and green energy at an affordable price. So UK taxpayers are yet again being milked to cover the initial investment in green technology and green energy which has led, and will continue to lead, to a significant increase in forthcoming energy costs. It is believed that energy costs in the UK could rise by as much as 50% in the short term and are unlikely to fall even when the green energy framework is in place.

Why is it that the introduction of a new technology always leads to higher taxes and higher costs for UK consumers and UK businesses? It seems that corporate UK is willing to take the benefits of these moves but in many cases is unwilling to take on initial setup costs?
