Energy users face wind farm bill  

Gas and electricity consumers could face further rises in bills to pay for the renovation and renewal of the infrastructure, energy regulator Ofgem said.

Ofgem chief executive Alistair Buchanan said: ” Over the next 12 years, the Government has said that it wants to increase energy consumption from wind power from 2.5 gigabytes to 30 gigabytes.

”Most of these wind farms will be built in inaccessible places.

” We will need to develop the network to connect to these places.”

About 25pc of energy bills go towards paying for the cost of networks.

Mr Buchanan said: “We want to ensure that, if prices go up on the 25pc of the energy bill that we regulate, customers do not feel they are being ripped off.”
