CHANNEL 4 DISPATCHES...Government subsidies to 'Green Energy', Drax Power Station and forest devastation in the US.
I was very shocked by the information in this programme. Drax is apparently the largest power station in this country earning billions of pounds in Government subsidies per annum for supplying 'green energy'. There was a wealth of very shocking information but the essence of it is they burn wood pellets! The CO2 emissions from this 'biomass' fuel was measured as higher than the coal it replaced by 8%. Can Ovo assure me that they do not use fuel from the Drax power station or any other that uses wood pellets as fuel in my 100% greener energy?
