Brits Keen To Go Green But Don’t Want To Pay For It

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Energy Live News.

It is an interesting article.

  • People in London and Northern Ireland are more likely to pay a green premium.
  • People in the South-East and Wales are most unlikely.
  • More than one in 10 of those willing to pay more would be happy to pay an extra 31-50% for greener energy.

I think it is better value to make sure you don’t use the energy in the first place.

I also feel, that much of our housing stock can never be made energy efficient and should be knocked down and replaced with better quality housing.

  1. We had a new gas boiler fitted a few weeks ago. When British gas came and did our annual gas service they told of a special deal for certain types of house which meant we only paid for installation, the actual boiler was free. Definitely glad we did it, it is lovely and cosy now. The existing one was 25 years old, and I thought it needed replacing ages ago, but Neil wanted to wait until there was a good deal!. Heating-wise, we are lucky; we have high end double glazing, warm wool carpet throughout, thick curtains with thermal linings everywhere in house, and both reception rooms have lovely coal effect electric fires for when we don’t want the heating on – and they are thermostatically controlled as well. It must be very difficult for people who don’t have these things, and have to worry about heating their home in winter.
